  The Elizabeth Taylor AIDS Foundation (ETAF) 

honored
NBA Hall of Fame  legend, philanthropist and businessman 
Earvin “Magic” Johnson 
and philanthropist and entrepreneur Cookie Johnson at

 the Elizabeth Taylor Ball to End AIDS 

fundraising gala held at The Beverly Hills Hotel.

Award-winning actors Angela Bassett and Courtney B. Vance presented the Johnsons with the Elizabeth Taylor Commitment to End AIDS Award at the fourth annual event. The star-studded evening featured an unforgettable performance by seven-time GRAMMY® Award-winning ‘Empress of Soul’ Gladys Knight

 

The gala – generously supported by Presenting Sponsor Gilead Sciences, Inc. and Diamond Sponsor Bulgari – included a seated dinner and an exciting live auction in partnership with Christie’s featuring unique works of art and luxury experiences with Brett Sherlock serving as auctioneer. Guests were given an up-close look at exclusive items from The Elizabeth Taylor Archive including highlights from Elizabeth Taylor’s personal life, film career, and philanthropy.

Co-Chairs for this year’s Elizabeth Taylor Ball to End AIDS 

included musician, model, actor and ETAF Ambassador Paris Jackson
 as well as entrepreneur, producer, ETAF friend and longtime supporter Christine Chiu
 

Event Highlights:

  • On-stage while accepting the Elizabeth Taylor Commitment to End AIDS AwardEarvin “Magic” Johnson said, “When I think about my journey 32 years ago, when people say I wouldn't be here, it's companies like Gilead and others who provided [an opportunity]. At that time there was only one drug, but the blessing is, now there are over 40. We made some great strides. Now we can have dinners and talk openly about HIV and AIDS where back then we couldn't.”

 

  • Event host Angela Bassett said, “When Elizabeth Taylor founded The Elizabeth Taylor AIDS Foundation decades ago, she knew what is still so clear today. The HIV/AIDS epidemic is not just a health crisis. It is also a social justice and health equity crisis. Even though we've made so much scientific progress, people living with HIV still face stigma, discrimination, criminalization, and profound inequities.”

 

  • Courtney B. Vance read a letter on-stage from former President Barack Obama congratulating the Johnsons on the award that said, “They didn't just help raise research dollars or educate the public. They moved us to think in an entirely new way about a condition affecting millions of people around the world – changing attitudes with the kind of grace and encouragement that only true leaders can display. It was the same grace and courage Elizabeth Taylor displayed when she became the first globally recognized HIV and AIDS activist. Work that has been carried on in so many ways by the foundation that bears her name. Magic's pragmatic, optimistic approach to his diagnosis ended up changing the way the world saw the disease.”

ABOUT ETAF

Working tirelessly on the AIDS crisis throughout the 1980s, Elizabeth Taylor established The Elizabeth Taylor AIDS Foundation (ETAF) in 1991 to carry out her vision for an AIDS-free world. ETAF works to provide the direct care needed for people living with and affected by HIV and AIDS. Emphasizing Elizabeth's voice, commitment, and concentration on hard-to-reach communities, ETAF's domestic advocacy initiatives remain a priority. HIV Decriminalization nationally is ETAF’s primary advocacy initiative. ETAF's programs have also expanded to ensure that HIV prevention education and access to treatment are available through domestic and international initiatives.
