Harry Winston, Inc. served as a presenting sponsor for last night’s inaugural amfAR Hong Kong Gala, a fundraising event to benefit the organization’s research programs and platforms for raising awareness of HIV/AIDS.
“We are honored to serve as a presenting sponsor for amfAR’s first fundraising gala in Hong Kong,” said Nayla Hayek, CEO of Harry Winston, Inc.“Through Harry Winston’s three year partnership, it is our hope that amfAR will be able to continue its leadership in the search for a cure for HIV/AIDS, and to further educate and raise awareness about this global epidemic that affects millions of people worldwide.”
During the cocktail portion of the evening, Harry Winston unveiled its new high jewelry collection, Secrets by Harry Winston, which presents a series of new designs that explore Mr. Winston’s own hidden identity, while demonstrating the House’s commitment to his pioneering vision in craftsmanship and design.
Harry Winston also auctioned off a Forget-Me-Not Diamond Necklace, modeled by Gwyneth Paltrow, and presented the night’s Humanitarian Leadership Award recipient, Michelle Yeoh, with a Harry Winston Midnight Monochrome Timepiece, for her outstanding contributions to raise awareness of HIV/AIDS.
With its support representing the single largest corporate partnership in the organization’s history, Harry Winston is the first company to serve as the presenting sponsor for amfAR’s 27 gala events over the next three years, and is the leading supporter of amfAR’s research initiative, Countdown to a Cure.
