Sixth Annual MTV RE:DEFINE Benefit Raises Over $2.7M

By Whitewall

March 28, 2017

Last Friday saw the sixth annual MTV RE:DEFINE benefit. The gala, auction, and exhibition curated by Neville Wakefield was presented by The Joule, in partnership with the MTV Staying Alive Foundation, The Goss-Michael Foundation, and Dallas Contemporary. The night, hosted at the museum, was a success raising over $2.7 million.

This year’s event was hosted by Joyce Goss and Kenny Goss, chaired by Maxine Trowbridge, with co-chairs Jerome Sans and CJ Jones. MC for the night was Oli Barrett, who helped to honor artist Eric Fischl and fashion designer Johnson Hartig. And to cap off festivities was a performance by Grammy Award-winning Chaka Khan.

To commemorate the late George Michael, a special tribute video was played, and artist Damien Hirst donated a one-of-a-kind piece to the auction that went for $580,000 during the live auction conducted by Christie’s President Brook Hazelton.
