The event each year is flooded with Hollywood’s most notable stars and brings in tens of millions of dollars for DiCaprio’s charity, which donates to a myriad of environmental and wildlife causes.
The ‘Courtesy of Harvey Weinstein’ prize was offered up in 2015 and 2016 and let the winner share a table with the infamous producer at his company’s annual dinner party on the night before the Oscars, and walking on the red carpet with him at the Met Ball.
His ex-wife Georgina Chapman was also involved in his donation to DeCaprio’s charity.

‘For the lady attending the parties, be dressed in a one-of-a-kind couture Marchesa dress – and take it home afterwards,’ the auction catalog from 2016 reads.
That year’s package also included two tickets to the 2017 Super Bowl, two invites to the White House Correspondents’ Dinner and two front-row seats to the ‘Project Runway’ Finale.
The winner was also invited to visit a movie set with Weinstein to ‘see how a movie is made in front of our eyes.’
Another part of the prize were two one-month internships at the Weinstein Company in either New York, London or Los Angeles.
It’s not clear exactly how high the bidding went, but one bidder won a ‘similar prize’ after bidding $1.1million at the 2015 event, according to Variety.
And in 2016 guests could bid on the opportunity to have Kevin Spacey come to their homes to put on a private theater performance.

The Foundation still touts the ‘highlights’ of the 2015 event and auction on its website, and even called Weinstein’s donation ‘a stunning collection of experiences.’
But the charity claims it was stiffed by the winners of the Weinstein and Spacey packages.
‘LDF never received payment for any auction lots donated by Mr Weinstein or Mr Spacey, which were included in our 2015 and 2016 catalogues,’ a foundation rep told the Post.
DiCaprio and Weinstein had a professional relationship before sexual harassment and assault allegations against him were uncovered last year, starring in his production company’s ‘Gangs of New York’ and ‘Django Unchained.’
Once they surfaced DiCaprio issued a statement saying there was ‘no excuse’ for his alleged actions.
‘There is no excuse for sexual harassment or sexual assault — no matter who you are and no matter what profession,’ DiCaprio said.
‘I applaud the strength and courage of the women who came forward and made their voices heard.’
