The Gala was held at the famous Krasny Oktyabr Chocolate Factory in Moscow and took the form of a sit-down dinner that brought together 250 friends of the Foundation, including leading figures from the art and fashion industries.
The main focus of the event was a charity auction, which raised $1.4 million for the Naked Heart Foundation.
The art works for the auction were generously donated by Sir Peter Blake, Chapman Brothers, Keith Tyson, Semyon Faibisovich, Vitkor Pivovarov, Vitaly Komar, Gosha Ostretsov, Vinogradov and Dubossarsky, David Datuna, AES+F and Joana Vasconcelos.
Later in the evening, there was a musical performance by the band “Naked Hearts“, presented by Ronnie Wood from the Rolling Stones and Johnny Marr.
The Gala was supported by Guerlain, Harper’s Bazaar, BMW and Louis Vuitton.
