Washington, DC (July 21, 2012) – On Friday, Sharon Stone, along with Tyson Beckford, Kiehl’s President Chris Salgardo, and amfAR’s CEO Kevin Robert Frost rode up to the Georgetown Kiehl’s to mark the culmination of the third annual Kiehl’s LifeRide for amfAR. Local DC chef’s R.J. Cooper, Mike Isabella, David Guas and Robert Wiedmaier also participated in the LifeRide.

LifeRide is a ten-day philanthropic motorcycle ride along the Eastern Seaboard to raise awareness for HIV/AIDS research and resources, and bring attention to the International AIDS Conference, hosted in Washington, DC. The conference has not been hosted in the United States since 1990, when it was hosted in San Francisco.

Kiehl’s, which is carried in hotels like the Carlyle Hotel and Tribeca Grand in New York and most Thompson Hotels, presented a $115,000 check to Sharon Stone.
