Bambino's SEE and Be SEEN: Strike II, Visual AIDS Benefit 2008

Guess where we were last night? That's right, supporting one of the most important benefits you should know about and support. The Visual AIDS Benefit. It's not only about supporting your community, but it's about our humanity. And, of course, the benefit is so much fun.

Sikkema Jenkins Senior Partner, Michael Jenkins and curator Javier Romero

This year's benefit was excellent! You could see how much work the committee people put in to support the organization.
We saw tons of our friends (and won't be able to list all of them but here are some): Michael Jenkins and Javier Romero (above), the Mixed Green crew, Margaret and Richard Thatcher, Pavel Zoubok and Paul, Monya Rowe, Ann Price, Rachel Gugelberger, Robert Goff and Cassie Rosenthal, and Simon Watson, and just to name a few.

And of course there were this year's honorees, Tony Feher and Yoko Ono (she looked fantastic!).
Amy Sadao, Yoko Ono,
Tony Feher, Joy Episalla, Jeffrey Deitch, Jeff Koons (I am so proud of myself taking those pictures (with my not paparazzi digital camera), standing next to the real paparazzi guys, with their fancy flashes. My pictures look damnnn good :)

The music was fantastic too, as Nayland Blake served as DJ and made us to shake our booties the entire evening.
There are so many people to thank who supported Visual AIDS this year and previous years. But everyone little bit helps so keep giving.

There was some bowling competition between Jeff Bailey

and Ed:

It was tough :)

Everyone and myself bowled until the last minute. Someone took it really serious and hurt their foot (Monica).

And someone looked fantabolous in her evening dress and bowling shoes, great combination (Monya)!

Congratulations to the Visual AIDS crew, Amy and Nelson, for another very successful and fun benefit!

Benefit Co-Chair and gallerist Pavel Zoubok and Visual AIDS Executive Director Amy Sadao

And another event you should and must know is tomorrow's event at White Columns, the benefit for Momenta Art. I am telling you, you wont be sorry to get the tickets for that price, because the artwork you'll see there is really fantabolous.

it was a lot of fun!
hey my friend Bob has started a terrific new blog on Learning to Bowl. It's designed for completely inexperienced bowlers or to help experienced bowlers who would like to improve their score.

I was hoping there would be a pic of Jeff Koons in bowling shoes.
