A Black Tie Affair 

Celebrating its thirteenth year, The UNICEF Snowflake Ball is one of the most notable galas in New York City with over 800 guests. Presented by Mariner Investments, this year's goal is to raise over $4 million for UNICEF's work to put children first.

Last year's Ball featured some huge surprises! The event honored GRAMMY® Award winning recording artist and UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador Katy Perry and Philanthropist Moll Anderson. Secretary Hillary Rodham Clinton made a surprise appearance to present Katy Perry with the Audrey Hepburn® Humanitarian Award alongside UNICEF USA National Board Member Pamela Fiori. The evening was hosted by Academy Award® winner Octavia Spencer and featured performances by Sara Bareilles and the cast of The Color Purple.

Join us on Tuesday, November 28, 2017 at Cipriani Wall Street for what is sure to be another memorable evening of putting children first!
