BOFFO Spring Benefit
The Narcissists Ball is the annual BOFFO Spring Benefit. The original concept and title of the event was based on an auction format where collectors could have their portrait commissioned by over 30 artists a year. We no longer feel comfortable using the term Narcissists to refer to our friends and supporters, but we are happy to propose a stance against Narcissism, especially whenever it promotes hatred and discrimination. The ANTI-Narcissists Ball is a love affair of epic proportions that brings together our creative community for an evening of splendor. In response to some of the disrespectful language and actions the current administration has directed towards Mexico, we believe it is important come together and celebrate the amazing contributions Mexicans have made to culture. This spring, join us to celebrate Pia Camil, Raul de Nieves, and Enrique Norten, while we salute curator Pablo León de la Barra, along with other great artists, architects, and designers from Mexico who shape our community through their creativity. With our 2017 partners Milagro, Pro Mexico, the Consulate General of Mexico, we’ll celebrate diversity and inclusion without boundaries, across borders. The benefit will take place on May 24 with a dinner, cocktails, music, art auction, and an honoree program. There will also be an intimate cocktail reception at the official residence of the Consulate General of Mexico with Ambassador, Diego Gómez Pickering on May 8.
