On Saturday, September 22, 2012, amfAR, The Foundation for AIDS Research, will present amfAR Milano, the Foundation’s fourth annual benefit held in conjunction with Milan Fashion Week.
amfAR Milano will be presented by Moët Hennessy and hotel partner Westin Palace Milan. The black-tie gala will take place at La Permanente and will feature cocktails, dinner, and a live auction conducted by Sharon Stone. The evening will also include special performances by fashion industry favorites Theophilus London and Anna Calvi.
Fendi O’ will present the official amfAR Milano after-party at La Permanente, featuring a DJ set by Mark Ronson.
Through the years, the Italian fashion community has been exemplary in its support of amfAR, with fashion houses and designers underwriting and leading many of the Foundation’s most successful fundraising efforts. Since amfAR’s first international benefit, held in 1993 during the Cannes Film Festival and hosted by amfAR Founding International Chairman Dame Elizabeth Taylor, the Foundation’s international galas in Milan, New York, Cannes, Venice, Rome, and Dubai have become some of the most high-profile and eagerly anticipated charity events in the world and have helped raise millions for critical AIDS research programs.
