The amfAR annual Inspiration Gala returns to Los Angeles this year for what promises to be another unforgettable evening. The black-tie event will feature a cocktail reception, dinner, live auction and a special performance.

This spectacular star-studded black-tie event will feature cocktails, a seated dinner, a live auction of luxury items, musical performances, and a special tribute to our honorees.
