Unless you believe THIS Titanic theory, then Jack Dawson and Rose DeWitt Bukater (that’s a mouthful, isn’t it?) was quite possibly one of the greatest love stories of all time. Who didn’t watch Titanic over and over, screaming “Don’t let go of Jack!” by the end? Now it seems as though a very special Titanic reunion is happening, with the chance for you to bag yourselves a dinner date with the lovestruck couple.
Leonardo DiCaprio will be auctioning off a private dinner date with himself and Kate Winslet, in order to raise funds for his charity, The Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation – catchy name. The (finally) Oscar-Winning actor will be auctioning off the prize in celebration of the 20th Anniversary of Titanic, which is insane for two reasons. One, you’ll get to have dinner with Jack and Rose! Two, that means it’s been 20-years since we saw Titanic in the cinema – we’re officially old.
The Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation is an environmental charity that is dedicated to the long-term health and wellbeing of ALL Earth’s inhabitants. According to the charity’s website, they support projects that protect vulnerable wildlife, build climate resiliency, and restore balance to threatened communities and ecosystems. Oh Leo, you’re such a dream.
Every year, the charity hosts an auction gala to raise money for all of the environmental projects that it supports. Last year it raised a whopping $45 million and was attended by the likes of Naomi Campbell, Jonah Hill, Edward Norton, Bradley Cooper and Bono. We have a feeling that this year could raise even more, however, with the Titanic reunion dinner date on the cards!
The lucky (slash megarich) winner will be able to choose the restaurant for their dinner date, which will take place in October or November of this year.
