The 2020 amfAR gala in Cannes has been cancelled. Organisers had been closely monitoring the situation with COVID-19 and after much consideration, decided to scrap this year’s event.
Those who already purchased a ticket or table have been contacted and offered a credit for any upcoming event, or a full refund.
Another cause Elton has supported is the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. He has appeared at many of their Hot Pink Party fundraisers in New York City.
This year, however, the benefit, set for the 20th of May (a day before amfAR‘s was to take place), is taking on a new virtual format.
So there will be a live-stream of inspiring performances and special celebrity messages (perhaps including one from Elton himself).
