The event, presented by Harry Winston and Calvin Klein Collection, raised over $4 million for amfAR’s life-saving AIDS research programs.

Other guests in attendance included Liu Wen, Carina Lau, Coco Lee, amfAR Global Fundraising Chairman Milutin Gatsby, Francisco Costa, Italo Zucchelli, Kevin Carrigan, Elvis Han, Zhou Xun, So Ji Sub, Lang Lang, Rosamund Kwan, Valentina Zelyaeva, Anita Yuen, Josie Ho, Laurinda Ho, Sabrina Ho, Cathy Chow, Niki Chow, Amanda S, Ying Claudine Lauren, Yvette Yung, Harris Chan, Oscar Wang, Hwang Chi Yeul, Shui He, Yan Lv, Maisy Ho, Angela Leong, Arnaldo Ho, Orlando Ho, Maria Ho, Bao Bao Wan, Andy Chen, Paolo Diacci, Vinay Dube, René Koneberg, Vincent Roberti, Victoria Tang, Ying Claudine Lauren, Michelle Ong, Winnie Chiu, Yvette Yung, Jean-Marc Lacave, Achille Boroli, Y C Koh, Wendy Yu, Rachel Lehmann, David Maupin, Bill Zhao, and Poyd(Thai transgender actress), among others.

amfAR Chairman of the Board Kenneth Cole encouraged guests to celebrate how much has been accomplished in the fight against HIV and AIDS while not losing sight of the hard work that remains to be done to end the epidemic, through programs such as amfAR’s Countdown to a Cure for AIDS initiative and the TREAT Asia Program.

Newly named UN Goodwill Ambassador Michelle Yeoh thanked the event’s sponsors with amfAR CEO Kevin Robert Frost, who announced the launch of a limited edition Countdown to a Cure Timepiece by Harry Winston. Twenty percent of the retail sales price of the men’s and ladies’ timepiece will be donated to amfAR’s efforts to develop a cure for HIV.

Event Chair Pansy Ho graciously thanked the sponsors and guests who made the event possible and invited all of the event Co-Chairs to take the stage for a family photograph.

Uma Thurman introduced the amfAR Award of Courage to Victoria Beckham, describing her as “a champion and leader in the global fight against AIDS.” Ms. Beckham thanked the individuals she has met over the past two years as a UNAIDS International Goodwill Ambassador, a role in which she raises awareness for young women and girls affected by the epidemic, ensuring to use her voice to build a healthier society and see an end to AIDS.

Guests enjoyed bidding on exclusive items during the live auction, conducted by Simon de Pury. Highlights included:
- Eight unique Andy Warhol photographs from his first and only trip to China in 1982 sold for $190,000.
- Model Karolina Kurkova introduced dazzling Harry Winston “Triple Diamond Loop Earrings,” set with rubies designed exclusively for the Hong Kong gala, which sold for $75,000.
