The amfAR Gala New York serves as the unofficial kickoff to New York Fashion Week and honors individuals who have made outstanding contributions to the fight against HIV/AIDS. This spectacular black-tie event will feature cocktails, a seated dinner, a live auction of luxury items, musical performances, and a special tribute to our honoree.

Since 1998, the amfAR Gala New York has become one of New York City’s most successful and high-profile AIDS benefit events. The Gala consistently attracts—and salutes—some of the biggest names in entertainment, fashion, art, and AIDS advocacy. To date, the amfAR Gala New York has raised close to $21 million.



Carnevale di Venezia comes to life in a sumptuous, over-the-top fusion of Baroque dance, live music, opera, circus, gender-bending burlesque, and vivid immersive theater with New York fantasy architects Dances of Vice and Company XIV. Surrounded by the beauty of Beaux-Arts architecture, Corinthian columns, and the majestic 19th century skylight of Capitale NY, amorous audiences will experience the magic and mystery of a Venetian masquerade, with our signature hedonistic twist.

VIP ticket holders will additionally be granted access to a BDSM parlor and exclusive lounge on the club's second level for private seating, VIP-only bars, and additional provocative, sado-sensual performances.

DRESS CODE: Fantasy dress, Carnevale themed, or black tie attire required.


On Thursday evening, February 14, join The Bowery Mission at our 20th annual Valentine Gala at the iconic Plaza Hotel. You are invited to our signature fundraising event, where you will have the opportunity to network with friends and new contacts while we celebrate together the impact and growth of The Bowery Mission's work with neighbors experiencing homelessness, hunger and poverty in the New York metro area.
