UNICEF Masquerade Ball Chicago

Superheroes and Villains

Unmask your inner superhero to save and protect children around the world.

ONE MILLION THANK YOUS to you for coming out last night to our ​first #UNICEFMasqChi!

Thanks to event supporters like YOU, UNICEF Masquerade Balls took place in three cities simultaneously, New York, Los Angeles, and Chicago, raising $460,000 to benefit UNICEF’s education programs for Syrian children. With these funds, UNICEF will be able to help provide thousands of displaced children with school supplies, learning centers as well as teacher training and materials. Thanks to UNICEF's partnership with the Education Above All Foundation, the funds raised to increase equitable access to education for out of school children in Syria and the surrounding region will be matched to double the impact each gift will have. For more information, please visit here.

We thank you for being champions for the children of Syria.

Since we were able to accomplish all of this in one night... Imagine what year-round involvement with UNICEF's NextGen can do? If you're interested in joining, please find more information here

Pictures will be posted HERE.

Once again, a big thank you to all of who purchased tickets and donated to make last night a huge success. We would also like to thank our endlessly kind and generous supporters below.
