The charity evening of Sharon Stone in Tbilisi with Hollywood stars
has collected about $1 million. Georgian businessmen paid from 5,000
to 10,000 laris per ticket, Georgia Online reports.

The dinner was held after a presentation of the film "5 Days of
August", about the Russian-Georgian war of 2008. The film's crew,
including director Renny Harlin and actors Andy Garcia and Sharon
Stone, were at the presentation.

The French three-star chef Alan Pasar prepared the dinner.

Georgian folk performances were presented.

Renny Harlin and Andy Garcia met people waiting for them on the
street. There were also protesters with posters saying "August days is
a feast for Saakashvili, but a tragedy for Georgia", "Cheap propaganda
is not art", "Roses for Stone, stones for people". They tried to break
into the hotel but were stopped. Some were detained for hooliganism.
