As has become the tradition, Tiffany & Co will be taking part by donating 75 pieces of Tiffany’s jewelry… but instead of the Mystery Blue Box wall we can expect something new! Details are yet to be revealed but we do know that amongst the pieces for sale will be Tiffany’s new Ziegfeld Collection, inspired by the Great Gatsby movie! Fundación MIR has already started taking pre-orders on the Tiffany boxes – so if you want one be sure to reserve yours when you purchase your tickets (details below).

We look forward to seeing you there!
