We were honored to be part of the Elton John 23rd Academy Awards Viewing Party. An incredible night hosted by Elton John and David Furnish and sponsored by Bulgari. The 25th annual Elton John AIDS Foundation Academy Awards Viewing Party raised a record-breaking $7 million for the global effort to end AIDS.
“As we look back on our efforts over the past 25 years to prevent HIV infections, help people living with the disease, and speak up for their rights, we have a lot to be proud of and a lot of valuable experiences to inform our work going forward,” said Elton. “This party and our work have always been about love, inclusion, fairness, and good health for everyone. We believe these remedies can cure anything – most especially AIDS.” –Elton John
