Watch "A Gala for Our Time" an amfAR fundraising event for AIDS research

I hope you can join us for A Gala for Our Time! It’s shaping up to be a festive, highly entertaining and informative evening.

This virtual gala has the advantage of being free and open to guests from any location. So we hope to extend a warm welcome to you, wherever you happen to be.

We are delighted to be honoring Glenn Close and Dr. Anthony Fauci with our Award of Courage, and thrilled that Julia Roberts and Bette Midler have graciously agreed to “present” the awards.

A longtime supporter of the fight against AIDS and LGBTQ rights, Ms. Close has garnered acclaim for her unforgettable performance as Roy Cohn in amfAR’s recent production of scenes from Angels in America.

Today, Dr. Fauci needs no introduction. But he has been at the forefront of the fight against AIDS and a staunch ally and colleague for 35 years, and he is a most deserving honoree.

As the coronavirus continues to ravage the nation and the world, we are intensifying our efforts to develop safe and effective treatments through the amfAR Fund to Fight COVID-19. Proceeds from the gala will support the fund and accelerate this critical work.

It is our hope that we can soon turn the tide on COVID-19 and return to focusing exclusively on a cure for the 38 million people living with HIV. Until then, stay safe and healthy, and thank you for your support.
