Children's Champion Award Dinner 2013

The U.S. Fund for UNICEF hosts its annual fundraising gala, the Children’s Champion Award Dinner, in Boston, Massachusetts, to honor individuals who strive to help us reach the day when ZERO children die from preventable causes. We applaud this year’s award recipients, Lauren Bush Lauren and David Lauren, for their enduring commitment to improving children’s lives. Lauren and David join an impressive group. Past honorees include: Nelson Mandela; Queen Noor; Princess Caroline; the Red Sox’s David Ortiz; the Boston Celtics; and, most recently, UNICEF Ambassador Trudie Styler and Sting.

The U.S. Fund for UNICEF is also proud to award Charlene Engelhard with the Helenka Pantaleoni HumanitarianAward this year. Charlene is an artist and philanthropist, who has used her talents, resources, and interest to provide therapy and healing to children and teens in conflict and resource poor settings through the Art-in-a-Box program partnered with UNICEF. A true role model, Charlene embodies the spirit of the Helenka Pantaleoni Humanitarian Award in her dedication to the children of the world.
