Planned Parenthood 100th Anniversary Gala
2 MAY, 2017 (NEW YORK)


In October 2016, Planned Parenthood turned 100 years strong. Planned Parenthood was founded on the revolutionary idea that women should have the information and care they need to live strong, healthy lives and fulfill their dreams — no ceilings, no limits.


Today, Planned Parenthood is a trusted health care provider, an informed educator, a passionate advocate, and a global partner helping similar organisations around the world. Planned Parenthood delivers vital reproductive health care, sex education, and information to millions of women, men, and young people worldwide. 


The art world has shown resounding support for Planned Parenthood, including raising over $2.5 million at the 2015 Choice Works auction, co-chaired by Marilyn Minter, Cindy Sherman, and Laurie Simmons. As a continuation of the Choice Works programming, eight significant artworks will be auctioned off at Planned Parenthood’s 100th Anniversary Gala to help raise contributions for Planned Parenthood Federation of America and Planned Parenthood of New York City.

In advance of the auction, browse lots and place max bids before live bidding begins on May 2nd at 9:00pm ET. When the sale opens, all pre-registered users can participate and watch the bidding unfold in real time. Registration for the live auction will close on May 2nd at 6:00pm ET.

Because the event has received overwhelming response and interest, a silent auction featuring over 40 works by leading artists will launch the day of the gala to help raise additional funds needed to safeguard reproductive rights at this critical time.

Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation

Founded in 1998, the Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation is dedicated to the long-term health and wellbeing of all Earth’s inhabitants. Through collaborative partnerships we support innovative projects that build climate resiliency, protect vulnerable wildlife from extinction, and restore balance to threatened ecosystems and communities.

LDF is currently underway supporting and funding more than 112 cutting-edge projects that directly address our climate crisis while protecting threatened ecosystems, endangered wildlife and indigenous communities in 48 countries and all 5 oceans.

Significant progress has been made in just the past year. The Foundation expanded our efforts to protect ocean ecosystems from destructive, rampant overfishing, to defend enormous swaths of rainforest against logging, to protect gorillas, elephants and black rhinos in Africa, to empower local indigenous tribes in the Amazon to protect their lands and rights, and to save wild tigers and snow leopards in Asia. Working hand in hand with our partners, local communities and leaders around the globe, we are making a difference.

We are extremely proud of all that we have achieved, but the threat facing our planet remains enormous – and time is quickly running out. The next several years are critical. We can move our planet in the right direction, but there is a lot of work to be done.

Charitable auctions like this one help us generate the funds necessary to empower our partners on the ground around the world. We are excited to share this amazing collection of artwork, unique items, and incredible experiences that have been so generously donated to our effort this year. All the funds raised through this effort will help us turn the tide in the battle to protect our beautiful planet.

The Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation is a component fund of California Community Foundation, a registered 501 (c)(3) US organization. Gifts may be eligible for a tax deduction, please consult your tax advisor.

Thank you.

UNAIDS
13 JUNE, 2016 (BASEL, SWITZERLAND)

UNAIDS is celebrating its 20th anniversary and is pleased to welcome you to its second annual “Where History is Made” Gala to benefit UNAIDS.

Thank you for joining us this evening to support UNAIDS work in significantly increasing access to HIV prevention and treatment services for women and children worldwide and to pay tribute to our distinguished honoree, former UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan. We are proud and delighted to be able to honor him for his exceptional contribution to the global AIDS response.

Every four minutes, a child is infected with HIV. Without HIV treatment, half of all children living with HIV will die by the age of two and most will die before their fifth birthday. It is possible to prevent the deaths of children and mothers.

UNAIDS and partners recently launched Start Free Stay Free AIDS Free: Ending New Infections in Children, Adolescents and Young Women. This initiative aims at ending paediatric AIDS by making sure that we halt new infections in children, find children who have been missed and ensure they have access to lifesaving treatment, and prevent new infections in girls and young women.

You can make history by helping us to eliminate mother-to-child transmission of HIV and prevent thousands of deaths by supporting UNAIDS and our partners. With your help, we will soon be able to ensure that all children, everywhere, are born free from HIV.

Thank you so much and enjoy an inspiring evening to benefit children and families living with and affected by HIV.

Michel Sidibé

UNAIDS Executive Director

UNAIDS Gala 2016

The Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS) leads and inspires the world to achieve its shared vision of zero new HIV infections, zero discrimination and zero AIDS-related deaths. UNAIDS unites the efforts of 11 UN organizations—UNHCR, UNICEF, WFP, UNDP, UNFPA, UNODC, UN Women, ILO, UNESCO, WHO and the World Bank—and works closely with global and national partners towards ending the AIDS epidemic by 2030 as part of the Sustainable Development Goals.
