Action Against Hunger 2015 Gala
Save the Date for Action Against Hunger's 2015 Benefit Gala on Tuesday, November 3rd at 583 Park Avenue in support of its humanitarian programs around the world. In its 16th year, Action Against Hunger’s annual Gala brings together its most dedicated supporters and recognizes those helping us make great strides toward ending global hunger. The event will include cocktails, dinner, a live auction and awards presentation.
This year’s event will honor Google, whose partnership with Action Against Hunger began in 2013 to educate and empower Google employees with a better understanding of nutrition, global hunger, and effective ways to provide vulnerable communities access to life-sustaining nutrition. Google's unique employee engagement efforts have leveraged the inherent power of their workforce in novel ways for the broader good. To date, Google employees have raised over $2 million through their Fall Hunger Campaign for Action Against Hunger’s lifesaving work around the globe.
The evening will feature Special Guest Matthieu Ricard, Buddhist monk, international bestselling author, and photographer who is often referred to as the “happiest man in the world”. Matthieu is the Founder of Karuna-Shechen, a non-profit organization rooted in the ideal of compassion in action. Since 2000, Karuna-Shechen has been developing and managing programs for the under-served populations of India, Nepal, and Tibet.
The 2015 Gala Chair is Carmen Debbane along with Co-Chairs Rebecca Lainovic and Sandra Tamer.
