ANTIBES, France, April 4 (UPI) -- Former U.S. President Bill Clinton will serve as one of the event co-chairmen for the annual Cinema Against AIDS benefit for the Foundation for AIDS Research.

The Hollywood Reporter said Friday also serving in leadership roles for the non-profit organization's annual event in Antibes, France, will be actresses Sharon Stone and Michelle Yeoh, along with amfAR Chairman Kenneth Cole.

Other notable names such as Harvey Weinstein, Carine Roitfeld, Donatella Versace, Michael Litvak, Vincent Roberti and Bruce Weber will also serve as chairmen.

The May 21 event, which is co-sponsored by Chopard and Hewlett-Packard, will take place during the 62nd annual Cannes Film Festival.

This year's benefit is being presented by the Weinstein Co., Bold Films and Palisades Tartan, the Reporter said.

The Hollywood publication said last year's AIDS benefit helped raise more than $10 million in the global fight against the potentially deadly disease.
