Over $1.7 Million Raised at amfAR LA Gala Honoring Jeremy Scott and TikTok

Over $1.7 million was raised for amfAR’s HIV/AIDS research programs last night at the amfAR Gala Los Angeles honoring Moschino’s Jeremy Scott and the social media platform TikTok at the Pacific Design Center. An extraordinary highlight of the evening was when the legendary Madonna presented the Award of Courage to her close friend Jeremy Scott for his longstanding commitment to amfAR and the fight against AIDS. Madonna had guests out of their seats taking in every word as she spoke of her personal history with amfAR and the fight against AIDS and her friendship with Scott. While acknowledging the devastation of the Covid pandemic, she emphasized the importance of continuing to fight for a cause that is far from over with 1.5 million people newly infected globally each year. Jeremy Scott made an emotional acceptance speech and talked about his challenges growing up in the Midwest during the AIDS epidemic and how Madonna’s advocacy was a guiding light. Event Chairs included Alessandra Ambrosio, Anthony Anderson, Bobby Berk, Steve Buscemi, Lana Condor, Jenna Dewan, Jay Ellis, Karen Elson, Megan Fox, Tiffany Haddish, Regina Hall, Jon Hamm, Winnie Harlow, Kate Hudson, Cheyenne Jackson, Paris Jackson, Milla Jovovich, Nicole Kidman, Heidi Klum, Julian Lennon, Kacey Musgraves, Katy Perry, Addison Rae, Michaela Jaé Rodriguez, Meg Ryan, Nina Senicar, Symone, Ellen von Unwerth, and amfAR Board Co-Chairs T. Ryan Greenawalt and Kevin McClatchy, among others.
