Sean Penn’s “Help Haiti Home” event in Los Angeles this past Saturday attracted quite a few A-list celebrities. Hosted by Anderson Cooper who has been dedicated to raising awareness and funds for Haiti, the highlight of the event was the auctioning of a date with the two-time president of the United States, Bill Clinton.

The most surprising part of the night was no doubt when the actor and star of “Django Unchained”, Leonardo DiCaprio, got into a bidding war with two other partygoers.

In the end, DiCaprio suggested that all four of them get together and go on a joint date, adding together their contributions of $400,000.

After the dinner Sean Penn addressed his guests and spoke to them about his passion of helping out those who lived through a natural disaster.

He even described his trip to Haiti with Oprah Winfrey and recalled their conversation about the country’s smell.

“Do you ever get used to it?” Winfrey asked the Penn after stepping out of the van and onto the old streets of Port-Au-Prince. “When I’m away from it for too long, I miss it,” he told her.
