amfAR, The Foundation for AIDS Research



International fine jeweler and watchmaker Harry Winston, Inc., has joined forces with amfAR in a venture that represents the single largest corporate partnership in the Foundation’s 30-year history. Harry Winston will serve as the presenting sponsor for amfAR’s 27 gala events taking place across the globe over the next three years and will become a leading supporter of amfAR’s Countdown to a Cure for AIDS initiative. Through a wide range of generous contributions including in-kind donations and direct financial support, Harry Winston will help advance amfAR’s efforts to end the global AIDS epidemic through innovative research. 



Nayla Hayek, CEO of Harry Winston, Inc.

“Harry Winston has long looked to the glamour of Hollywood and the allure of its most famous and important gemstones, as a way to raise awareness and funds for local charitable causes. amfAR’s history of hosting some of the world’s most prominent charity events to drive support for its pioneering work towards finding a cure for AIDS, mirrors the same philanthropic principles and beliefs the Harry Winston brand was founded upon. Through amfAR, we are proud to not only continue our commitment to bringing more healthy and brilliant futures to all, but also to support the organization’s mission to ending a global epidemic, which continues to  impact more than 35 million people worldwide.”
