Rebecca Wang Continues Giving Spirit for EJAF’s Most Recent Fundraiser

The Elton John AIDS Foundation (EJAF) hosted a private party at the Windsor home of Elton John and David Furnish to benefit AIDS programs for young people.

 On June 23, the Elton John AIDS Foundation hosted a private fundraising dinner at the home of Elton John and David Furnish in Windsor to benefit their outreach programs geared towards young people in Africa. The invitation-only event, with an illustrious guest list including BVLGARI CEO Jean-Christophe Babin, actor Kevin Spacey, and fashion designer Valentino Garavani, raised funds to benefit children in Africa aged 10-19.

A shocking statistic reveals that AIDS is now the leading cause of death for this age group. As a huge demographic, this generation will have an immense impact on economics, society, and politics in Africa, and EJAF is dedicated to supporting them and ensuring that they are not exposed to HIV/AIDS. Rebecca Wang, who has been supporting with EJAF for years and received an exclusive invitation, will continue her patronage by supporting this event.

The intimate event took place at the private home of Elton John and David Furnish, a beautiful and elegant Queen Anne-style mansion which lies adjacent to the grounds of Windsor Castle. Hosted by David Williams, the event featured an auction of the works of Georg Baselitz, Romero Britto, and Luke Jerram, along with a beautiful necklace provided by BVLGARI, who generously underwrote the evening in support of the Elton John AIDS Foundation.

Funds raised at this event will go to multiple programmes in order to provide appropriate medication to the most vulnerable populations in Africa.

On Sunday, Feb. 22, Rebecca Wang, A-list celebrities and leading figures of the entertainment industry rallied in Hollywood, not only for the Academy Awards, but also to endorse the most high-profile event of the evening, the Elton John AIDS Foundation Viewing Party. Now in its 23rd year, this annual celebration has the distinction of being the largest of its kind to take place on Oscar night.

According to the Foundation’s website, to date the Viewing Party has raised nearly $45 million towards the Foundation’s many HIV/AIDS prevention and education initiatives. Its U.S. and U.K. branches have together raised more than $300 million since 1992 to support programs in 55 countries.

The evening is made possible each year through generous support and funding at both individual and corporate levels.

Sir Elton John and David Furnish gave thanks to event chairs and other supporters who include Rebecca Wang, Sharon Stone, Nicole Kidman, Keith Urban, Heidi Klum as well to Chopard, Neuro and Wells Fargo, sponsors for the evening, and to West Hollywood for hosting the party.

“Through its care, treatment and prevention initiatives across so many countries, the Foundation has moved mountains in the global fight against AIDS and the ignorance that surrounds it,” Wang said. “I am always proud to support the Viewing Party and its ground-breaking fundraising.”

The black-tie evening commenced at 4 p.m. when guests, including Miley Cyrus, Steven Tyler and Sharon Osbourne gathered firstly for cocktails rimmed in edible gold and sourced by Patron Tequila, then proceded at 5 p.m. to a lavish dinner prepared by Gordon Ramsey, during which they were able to watch a live telecast of the 87th annual Academy Awards.

Auctioneer Alexander Gilkes, co-founder and president of Paddle8, oversaw the fierce and exuberant bidding for the unique and exclusive lots. Afterward, music icon Nile Rodgers and his band Chic performed live before guests danced the evening away to tunes spun by DJ Johnny Dynell.
