Wear Your PJs: Action Against Hunger Launches First-Ever Virtual Gala
As the northeast continues its recovery from Hurricane Sandy, I’ve been struck by the collective spirit of resilience all around us—a spirit that can also be found at Action Against Hunger.
As many of you already know, cancelling our Annual Gala was a very difficult decision, but we’ve developed a terrific Plan B for you to experience—the silver lining in our storm cloud: Action Against Hunger’s first-ever Virtual Gala launches today, Monday 11/12.
We invite you to “attend” our virtual gala by exploring the following items at your leisure.
We have an array of luxury products and one-of-a-kind experiences to entice you. The auction is live as of today, and closes Tuesday 12/4 at 11:59pm EST.
Make a gift through the Wishing Well and you’ll make a tangible difference, e.g., providing a full-course of nutritional therapy for a malnourished child.
Overview of Our Work
Hurricane Sandy’s upending of our Gala will have serious consequences for the vulnerable children and families who would normally benefit from the $400,000 we hoped to have raised at the event.
Let’s not let Sandy thwart our efforts to reach the seven million people who benefit from Action Against Hunger's programs each year.
Thanks so much for your support, and enjoy the Virtual Gala!
