Halloween fundraising event to be art-directed by Jeff Koons
On Saturday, October 28th, the Naked Heart Foundation and amfAR, The Foundation for AIDS Research, will be joining forces for the first time to hold a magnificent Halloween edition of the Fabulous Fund Fair in New York City.
The event will be art-directed by Jeff Koons and will be the most innovative fundraiser the city has seen.
Distinctly different from a traditional sit-down dinner, this lively fundraiser is in the style of a classic funfair with stalls, games, and attractions to entertain and challenge guests. The stalls are voluntarily manned by many well-known and popular figures from the worlds of fashion, film, sports and entertainment, and the prizes are kindly donated by an array of luxury brands, including Fund Fair continuous supporters Louis Vuitton, Dior, Guerlain, Messika, Stella McCartney, Givenchy, Veuve Clicquot, and NET-A-PORTER, joined this year by Chopard, Moncler, Buccellati, Balmain, Artramus, American Dream, NIRAV MODI, Enlightened, KIA, and Sergio Rossi, among others.
Guests at the fair can try their luck at everything from Hook-a-Duck to Hoopla, with all proceeds from the sales of tickets and game tokens going to the Naked Heart Foundation and amfAR, both known for their outstanding charity work.
Naked Heart Foundation and amfAR are delighted to be working together for the first time. Both organizations are committed to advancing the health and well-being of children and adolescents and to supporting evidence-based policies and practices. For over a decade, amfAR has been improving treatment and care for children living with HIV through its TREAT Asia pediatric network. Naked Heart Foundation is dedicated to improving the lives of children with special needs and their families through a wide range of free support services.
Naked Heart Founder Natalia Vodianova is a high-profile supporter of amfAR, and both organizations are well known for their adorned charity galas that raise awareness as well as much-needed funds for their respective causes.
