12th Annual UNICEF Chicago Gala

| April 6, 2019 | Parties

On April 6, 2019, the Midwest Regional Office of UNICEF USA hosted 500 invitees at The Geraghty for the twelfth annual UNICEF Gala Chicago. During the black-tie soiree—which recognized Rotary International for the Evanston, IL-based organization’s efforts combating polio—, guest speaker Emma Kathleen Hepburn Ferrer saluted the thirtieth anniversary of the appointment of her grandmother, Audrey Hepburn, as a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador with a moving tribute. After dinner, remarks, and a Steve Lewis-led live auction, partygoers danced to music from the Ken Arlen Evolution Orchestra, capping off a memorable evening that generated $1.15 million for UNICEF.
