amfAR Charity Poker Tournament and Game Night
Gwyneth Paltrow, Vanessa and Billy Getty, and Jon Hamm were among the notables who attended amfAR’s second Charity Poker Tournament on Friday, November 15, at the private residence of Event Chairs Ann and Gordon Getty in San Francisco. Guests were invited to buy-in to the tournament for a chance to play with professional poker players while raising funds for amfAR. The black-tie gala included the tournament, live auction, and non-player activities including blackjack, roulette, fashion illustrations by Mokshini, portrait sittings by Drew Altizer, and music by DJ Dojah.
During a mid-event break from the tournament, Event Chair Gwyneth Paltrow welcomed guests and introduced Event Chair Aileen Getty. Getty acknowledged Ann and Gordon Getty for graciously hosting the event at their home, and thanked guests for supporting amfAR’s lifesaving research.
Actor and Event Chair Jon Hamm encouraged guests to be as generous as possible, and invited amfAR CEO Kevin Robert Frost to speak more about amfAR’s work towards a cure for AIDS. Frost recognized the generosity of the many longtime amfAR supporters in attendance, and spoke about the innovative cure-focused research taking place at the San Francisco-based amfAR Institute for HIV Cure Research.
