amfAR is committed to tackling the global AIDS epidemic through innovative research. Their latest event, held in Milan, Italy on Monday 28th September in conjunction with Milan Fashion Week 2009 promises not to disappoint. With cocktails followed by dinner, the event looks to be as successful as previous amfAR fundraisers, likely to attract famous names from all corners of the celebrity world.
Gay Rights advocate Janet Jackson’s battle against the AIDS epidemic stems from personal experience, as a number of her close friends have been affected by the virus. As a chair of the amfAR event, Jackson continues to campaign for research, just like other members of the Jackson family. Her sister La Toya has taken over her brother Michael's campaign work since his tragic death in June.
The AIDS Project Los Angeles movement has received valuable support from La Toya, who revealed to E! Online that charity work is helping her cope with her bereavement. “It means a lot to me because as you all know, my brother has given to so many organizations and this is one of the organizations he’s been giving to for over 10 years.”
