David LaChapelle at the 14th Annual Elton John AIDS Foundation Benefit November 6, 2015

On Monday, November 2, 2015, the Elton John AIDS Foundation (EJAF) held its 14th Annual “An Enduring Vision Benefit Gala” at Cipriani Wall Street in New York City. Hosted by CNN anchor Anderson Cooper, the benefit also included special speaker President of the Ford Foundation, Darren Walker, and a performance from KC and the Sunshine Band. David LaChapelle’s Elton John Egg on His Face (1999), featured as the invitation artwork for the event, was auctioned at the benefit and raised $90,000 to support HIV/AIDS prevention, treatment, and awareness programs across the United States, the Americas, and the Caribbean.

“I cannot begin to express how incredibly grateful I am to all of the amazing donors and friends who support and attend An Enduring Vision year after year,” said Elton. “Their generosity helps to make our lifesaving work possible and brings us closer to achieving our vision of a world without AIDS.”
