Annual Two X Two Raises Over $7.3M for amfAR

THE SCENE: The Dallas home of philanthropists Cindy and Howard Rachofsky set the stage for a weekend full of fun and incredible fundraising. The 19th annual Two X Two for AIDS and Art gala, which attracted over 500 of Dallas’ most notable, was an evening those on hand will not soon forget.

THE VIBE: As the black-tie clad partygoers entered the grounds of the Rachofsky estate, they encountered the geodesic dome designed by Todd Fiscus, which provided a verdant garden backdrop to pose for pictures. The impressive art on display for the silent auction during the Dom Pérignon and Belvedere cocktail reception dazzled guests, too.

As guests took their seats for their multi-course dinner, master of ceremonies and actor Armie Hammer effortlessly kept the evening moving as VIPs made their remarks including hosts Cindy and Howard Rachofsky and event chairs Nasiba and Thomas Hartland-Mackie. The action then turned to the live auction, conducted by Chairman of Sotheby’s Europe, Oliver Barker. During the course of the live auction, Pink Plant Patio Landscape Pot by 2017 amfAR nominee Jonas Wood fetched an astonishing $1.2 million.

THE CAUSE: The event raised a mind-blowing $7.3 million dollars for amfAR, the foundation for AIDS research, which seeks to achieve breakthroughs in finding a cure for AIDS by 2020 through their “Countdown to a Cure for AIDS.”
