Ambassador LeBron James and Celine Dion concert in Miami
President & CEO of Audemars Piguet North America, Francois-Henry Bennahmias, was joined by global brand ambassador and two-time NBA MVP and Miami Heat star LeBron James this evening at a charity event in support of Baptist Cardiac & Vascular Institute. At a private dinner Audemars Piguet sponsored following Celine Dion’s sold-out concert, Ms. Dion was on stage to help Mr. Bennahmias auction an 18K white gold and baguette diamond Jules Audemars Chronograph Tourbillon watch. At one point during the bidding, Ms. Dion even took the microphone and started singing songs related to time. LeBron James also got into the action on stage by adding two of his floor seats to a future Miami Heat/Boston Celtics game to the auction package. The atmosphere was electric, and the auction of several exclusive packages produced nearly $500,000 in proceeds, including a match from event grand benefactor Victor E. Clarke. The event kicked off the Institute's capital campaign to raise funds for a $60 million expansion on the Baptist Hospital campus, 8900 N. Kendall Drive.
