amfAR Gala Los Angeles
November 4, 2021
Los Angeles, CA
Over $1.7 million was raised for amfAR’s HIV/AIDS research programs at the amfAR Gala Los Angeles, November 4. The gala, held at the Pacific Design Center, honored Moschino’s creative director Jeremy Scott and the social media platform TikTok. A special tribute was also paid to former amfAR Trustee and longstanding supporter, the late Arlen Andelson, by amfAR CEO Kevin Robert Frost and amfAR Board Co-Chair T. Ryan Greenawalt. Amy Andelson, a new amfAR Board member, accepted on behalf of her father.
An extraordinary highlight of the evening was when the legendary Madonna presented the Award of Courage to her close friend Jeremy Scott for his longstanding commitment to amfAR and the fight against AIDS. Madonna had guests out of their seats taking in every word as she spoke of her personal history with amfAR and the fight against AIDS and her friendship with Scott.
The event also featured a competitive live auction and standout performances by OneRepublic and Bebe Rexha.
