Starry, Starry Night AM­FAR GALA DIN­NER

Hong Kong Tatler - - Faces -

More than US$3.5 mil­lion was raised for Aids re­search at the third edi­tion of the an­nual am­far gala din­ner, which was held at Shaw Stu­dios. The star-stud­ded guest list in­cluded ac­tress Char­l­ize Theron, su­per­model Naomi Camp­bell and singer-song­writer Mark Ron­son. David Tang pre­sented this year’s guest of hon­our, Pansy Ho, with the am­far Award for Courage and de­scribed her com­mit­ment to the fight against Aids as “noth­ing short of ad­mirable.”

A high point of the evening came dur­ing the live auc­tion cour­tesy of Jackie Chan, who sur­prised guests by auc­tion­ing off an op­por­tu­nity to ap­pear in his com­ing film with Sylvester Stal­lone and to at­tend the movie’s pre­miere in Bei­jing.

The cli­max of the night came when Bri­tish pop star Charli XCX took to the stage to per­form her chart­top­ping hits Boom Clap, Fancy, and I Don’t Care.
