Rebecca Wang Chairs AmfAR's 2013 Inspiration Gala In Los Angeles, Honouring Aileen Getty, Goldie Hawn And Hugo Boss Group

Chairs for the gala included Rebecca Wang, executive film producer and entrepreneur who is a devoted patron of the arts and a committed supporter to a number of significant charities; John Demsey, Group President of Estee Lauder; David Bohnett, philanthropist, technology entrepreneur and social activist; and Tim Hanlon, CEO of the Vetere Group.

Honorary Chairs included amfAR Chairman Kenneth Cole, Naomi Campbell, amfAR's Chair for Global Fundraising Sharon Stone, Janet Jackson and Elizabeth Murdoch.

Chelsea Handler presented the programme for the Inspiration black tie event, which began with a cocktail reception before dinner. Following this was one of the highlights of the gala: a high energy set from legendary performer Grace Jones. After Ms. Jones' performance, the evening proceeded to a live auction.

amfAR Inspiration events have the dual aim of celebrating men's fashion and style and simultaneously raising funds for continuing work and research into AIDS. The evenings are held annually in 6 cities world-wide: New York, Los Angeles, São Paulo, Toronto, Miami, and Rio de Janeiro. They are renowned as much for the stunning standard of their entertainment as for the immense amount of goodwill and participation generated by their fundraising initiatives.

Sponsors for the evening included M.A.C Viva Glam, Microsoft, and international banking and financial services company Wells Fargo. Josh Wood Productions resumed their regular expert role in producing the evening.
