Around Town: ‘One Night for One Drop’

Cirque du Soleil founder, Guy Laliberte’s charitable foundation,“One Night for One Drop,” held its showcase event of the year on March 8 at the “O” Theatre at Bellagio. Local and international celebrities hit the event’s signature blue carpet, as they enjoyed the one-night-only performance and after-party. Six live-auction items were up for bid, including a McLaren 570S Spider, a limited-edition Audemars Piguet timepiece and a St. Tropez getaway in a private chateau. The evening brought in more than $1 million, with proceeds directly supporting One Drop’s safe-water access initiatives around the world.
