amfAR LA 2013

Written By: Stefanie Bagala

As one of the core values of Gloria Ferrer, we focus on giving back and supporting many charities within the local and broader community. We recently had the privilege to be the sole sparkling and still wine sponsor of the amfAR Los Angeles Gala on December 12th, 2013.

If you are not familiar with amfAR, it is the largest organization that raises money and awareness for AIDS worldwide. Founded by Elizabeth Taylor, with co-chairs such as Sharon Stone and Naomi Campbell, amfAR is ranked third in the Guinness Book of World Records in terms of money raised. During the four hour gala event alone, nearly $4 million dollars were raised.amfAR-Chairman-of-the-Board-Kenneth-Cole,-amfAR-Honoree-Goldie-Hawn,-and-Kurt-Russell-(Photo-Kevin-Tachman)

The December event at Milk Studios in LA, was hosted by Chelsea Handler, Sharon Stone and Kenneth Cole while the honorees were Goldie Hawn, Hugo Boss and Aileen Getty.

It was a great pleasure to be part of this wonderful event and are even more honored to be the sole sparkling wine sponsor of the New York amfAR event on February 5th, 2014.
