On Tuesday, November 27, 2018, UNICEF USA hosted the fourteenth annual UNICEF Snowflake Ball at Cipriani Wall Street celebrating UNICEF’s lifesaving work for children and paying tribute to outstanding humanitarians. Presented by Mariner Investment Group, more than 900 guests attended the gala which raised over $4 million in support of UNICEF’s global mission to put Children First.

The event honored Sir Ringo Starr, who was presented with the George Harrison Humanitarian Award for his longtime commitment to humanitarian and environmental causes by the Founder of the George Harrison Fund for UNICEF Olivia Harrison and UNICEF USA President and CEO Caryl M. Stern. Desiree Gruber, CEO of Full Picture received the Spirit of Compassion Award for her extraordinary support of the world’s children, which was presented by actor and husband Kyle MacLachlan.

Over the course of the evening, guests enjoyed remarks from emcee, Emmy-nominated co-host of The View and Emmy-winning Senior Legal Correspondent for ABC News Sunny Hostin, along with a performance by nine-time Grammy Award winning artist Sheryl Crow. Throughout the night, the University of Aberdeen Chapel Choir paid tribute to George and Ringo through their music.
