Cindy and Howard Rachofsky are no strangers to philanthropy. Their Two x Two for AIDS and Art Gala is the largest fundraiser of the year for for amfAR, and the shared proceeds also support the DMA's Contemporary Art Acquisition Fund. This year, Two x Two raised $4.5 million. 

With the ramifications of Hurricane Sandy still affecting people in New York City, Two x Two donated $100,000 to the Art Dealers Association of America relief fund.

Howard, speaking on behalf of his wife and Two x Two play makers Melissa Meeks and Maxwell L. Anderson, made this statement:

Those of us involved with Two x Two for AIDS and Art are shocked and saddened by the terrible storm that decimated and caused incredible damage to so many galleries who have been so supportive of our endeavors over the last 14 years. We wanted to make an immediate gesture of support in some small way to help ameliorate the challenges facing our friends in Chelsea and the Lower East Side.

The ADAA: Sandy Relief Resources provides grants and funds to members and nonmembers affected by the hurricane in Zone A (Lower Manhattan) for the restoration of gallery businesses.
