The Tibet Fund celebrates 30 Years of Service to the Tibetan People on April 28 with a Gala Dinner and Art & Photography Auction. This year’s event honors actor Richard Gere for his dedication to protecting Tibet’s cultural identity, as well as philanthropists Shelley and Donald Rubin (Rubin Museum of Art) for their devotion to the preservation, study, and enjoyment of Himalayan art.

Chef Eric Ripert has invited Stephane Becht, April Bloomfield, David Chang, Tom Colicchio, Scott Conant, Dan Kluger, Mark Ladner, Anita Lo, Laurent Manrique and Joseph Realmuto to lend their culinary talents to the cause and make 30 Years of Service an extraordinary and unique occasion. The chefs will each cook for a table of 20 guests in the Pierre’s Grand Ballroom, which is being graciously donated by The Pierre Hotel.

Concierge Bid: The Auction will continue as a live event at the Pierre. If someone wants to bid
on-line, although they're not at the live event, they can place a "concierge bid" up to a certain amount and the Tibet Fund staff will keep their bid in play at the live event until their limit is reached. If they remain the highest bidder at the live event, they get the photo or artwork.

To buy tickets: call 212-213-5011 e-mail development@tibetfund.org. The Pierre Hotel, 2 E. 61st St. (at Fifth Ave.)
