Throughout the evening guests enjoyed Belvedere specialty cocktails and following Lady Gaga’s performance, rising pop star, Charli XCX, entertained guests with a special DJ set that carried on into the early morning hours.
“I think it is very important to join the fight against Aids and HIV and think it is wonderful that belvedere and Annabel’s are supporting and had this event this evening,” says Lady Gaga. “The more we can educate people the more we control the problem. I think it is really wonderful they are involved and think all major corporations should join the fight.”
