Halloween Edition of Fabulous Fund Fair in New York Raises Money for Naked Heart Foundation and amfAR
New York, NY.

The stalls are voluntarily manned by many well-known and popular figures from the worlds of fashion, film, sports, and entertainment, and the prizes are kindly donated by an array of luxury brands, including Fund Fair continuous supporters Louis Vuitton, Dior, Guerlain, Messika, Stella McCartney, Givenchy, Veuve Clicquot, and NET-A-PORTER, joined this year by Chopard, Moncler, Buccellati, Balmain, Artramus, American Dream, NIRAV MODI, Enlightened, Sergio Rossi, and Kia Motors America, Official Vehicle Partner, among others. Moët Hennessy is the Official Wine and Spirits Partner.
Guests at the fair could try their luck at everything from Hook-a-Duck to Hoopla, with all proceeds from the sales of tickets and game tokens going to the Naked Heart Foundation and amfAR, both known for their outstanding charity work. Other attractions this year included:
