The star light at amFAR this year was shining strong thanks to honoree Julia Roberts. More than $2 million for HIV cure research was raised at the eighth annual amfAR Gala in Los Angeles this month. amfAR, The Foundation for AIDS Research, is one of the world’s leading nonprofit organizations dedicated to the support of AIDS research, HIV prevention, treatment education, and advocacy.
The star-studded event, held in a tent on the upper lawn of Green Acres Estate (also known as the Harold Lloyd Estate), was hosted by James Corden. Tom Hanks and many other past amfAR honorees were in attendance to help honor Roberts for her contributions to the fight against AIDS and countless other humanitarian causes. Our team, led by lighting designer Nicolas Blasi, provided a soft texture of light over the dining tables as well as lighting for the stage which included performances by Corden, Fergie and Chris Martin of Coldplay. The stage backdrop was a hedge wall which we accented with uplighting. We also provided all of the portable power and distribution for all vendors.
It’s such an honor for us to be part of events as this and organizations such as amFAR doing good in the world! We thank producer DreamVisible for including us in this team with No Static AV and tent and rentals from Town and Country Event Rentals.
