ANGELA MISSONI HONORED AT amfAR MILANO 2017
Alessandra Ambrosio, Jourdan Dunn, Karolina Kurkova, Hailey Baldwin, Kat Graham, amfAR Chairman of the Board Kenneth Cole and many others joined the Italian fashion community in Milan last night to honor Angela Missoni and to help raise funds for amfAR’s innovative AIDS research programs. The ninth annual amfAR Milano gala was held at La Permanente in conjunction with Milan Fashion Week and was presented by Harry Winston. The gala raised $1.4 million for the Foundation. The black-tie dinner also featured special live performances by Andrea Bocelli and Lion Babe.
Karolina Kurkova opened the evening by thanking the event’s sponsors, and introduced Kenneth Cole, who spoke about amfAR’s efforts to find a cure for AIDS by 2020. ““Thanks to the generosity of everyone here and that of amfAR supporters around the world, we’ve been able to invest millions of dollars in research that has helped to transform AIDS from a death sentence to a treatable condition,” Cole said. “Tonight, we should take a moment to celebrate how much we’ve accomplished and how far we’ve come, while not losing sight of the hard work that remains to realize a cure for the 37 million individuals globally who are still living with HIV.”
