The top names in fashion, sports and entertainment were on hand in New York last week for AMFAR The Inspiration Gala at Skylight at Midtown’s gleaming new Moynihan Station.

Among the star-studded personalities on hand were supermodel Naomi Campbell, Dwayne Wade of the Miami Heat, actress Gabrielle Union, comedienne Whoopi Goldberg, Victoria’s Secret model Selita Ebanks, designer Zac Posen and Dr. Richard Firshein.

Among the evening’s presenting sponsors was luxury brand Harry Winston. The legendary fine jewelry company first partnered with the organization in 2015; the partnership is the brand’s first major collaboration with a global, philanthropic organization.

The Inspiration series launched in 2010 to raise funds for AMFAR’s lifesaving AIDS research programs while celebrating men’s fashion around the world. Since its inception, Inspiration galas have been held in New York, Los Angeles, Paris, São Paulo, Rio de Janeiro, Toronto, and Miami. To date, Inspiration events have generated more than $27 million to benefit amfAR, with close to $10 million raised at the Inspiration São Paulo event.

“Amfar does magnificent work,” says Dr. Firshein. ” They have committed all of their efforts and resources to fund research that will help eradicate the AIDS epidemic on a global scale.”
