Children First UNICEF Speaker Series

The Children First UNICEF Speaker Series in Boston consists of intimate luncheons (limited to 100 guests), attended by leaders in the academic, corporate and philanthropic communities of New England. In support of UNICEF’s lifesaving work for children, the majority of guests are individual major donors or prospective donors to the U.S. Fund for UNICEF.
