On Tuesday, October 28, 2014, the Elton John AIDS Foundation (EJAF) will present its 13th annual An Enduring Vision benefit at Cipriani Wall Street in New York City.
The Foundation welcomes back award-winning CNN anchor Anderson Cooper, who will host the event for a seventh year.
Founder Sir Elton John and Chairman David Furnish will present EJAF’s Enduring Vision Awards to Governor Andrew Cuomo, Charlie Hendon, Jay Jopling, and Nathalie and Pablo Salame. The Foundation honors Governor Cuomo for all of his extraordinary contributions to the fight against AIDS, especially his plan to end AIDS in New York State by 2020, and for his tremendous leadership in bringing marriage equality to New York. Atlanta real estate developer Charlie Hendon has been a devoted friend and generous supporter of EJAF’s work for many years. Jay Jopling, proprietor of the prominent gallery White Cube and a loyal EJAF supporter and advocate, has assisted the Foundation on numerous occasions by securing significant pieces of art for live auctions and art projects, helping to raise millions of dollars over the years for EJAF’s urgent mission. In addition to their extraordinary philanthropic support for the Foundation, Nathalie and Pablo Salame are also vocal champions of both EJAF’s work and LGBT rights issues.
