The Unicef Ball

On January 12, 2016, hundreds of Los Angeles notables came together to celebrate UNICEF’s work for children at the sixth biennial UNICEF Ball at the Beverly Wilshire Four Seasons Hotel. UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador David Beckham and University of Southern California President C. L. Max Nikias were honored for their extraordinary commitment to put children first. Under the leadership of Southern California Regional Board Chair, Ghada Irani, the black-tie gala raised over $2.5 million for UNICEF’s lifesaving programs for children. The evening featured a live performance by multi-Grammy Award winner Mariah Carey and was emceed by UNICEF Ambassador Angie Harmon. The majority of the proceeds from the live auction will benefit 7: The David Beckham UNICEF Fund – an initiative launched by David Beckham as a personal commitment to help the children around the world who need it most. Presented by Louis Vuitton, the UNICEF Ball marked the launch of LOUIS VUITTON for UNICEF, a global partnership between the humanitarian organization for children and the luxury fashion house to help support children affected by conflict, disease, natural disasters, and other situations that threaten their safety and well-being.*
