A gorgeous Queen Anne style mansion will provide the setting for the Woodside Gallery Dinner, hosted by the Elton John AIDS Foundation (EJAF), on June 22, 2017. Woodside is the stunning Windsor home of Sir Elton John and David Furnish, adjacent to the Old Windsor estate.
Writer and storyteller David Walliams will emcee the event, and legendary American songwriter Joan Baez will perform in front of an intimate and exclusive guest list on the beautifully landscaped grounds of Woodside.
The event will feature a private auction to benefit the largest hospital for children with HIV in Africa. Select items to be auctioned include a one-of-a-kind necklace from Bvlgari. Artist David Hockney and David Walliams himself will each offer personalized creations. Guests will also have the chance to bid on tickets to see Elton John and Andrea Bocelli at the Coliseum in Rome.
As a long-serving patron of EJAF, Rebecca Wang has been invited to support the organization once more. “Sir Elton John and David Furnish are always so generous to open up their home to friends and guests for such an elegant event,” she says. “The Elton John AIDS Foundation has been critical in the fight against the AIDS epidemic for nearly twenty-five years!”
The Elton John AIDS Foundation (EJAF) is one of the largest privately-funded institutions in the world working to overcome AIDS. Since its beginning the Foundation has prioritized the pivotal areas of treatment, prevention, and education, and raised over $350 million to support more than 1,400 projects world-wide.
“Sir Elton John’s dedication to helping those in need is a daily inspiration for me,” Wang explains.
