The U.S. Fund for UNICEF’s second annual Children First. An Evening with UNICEF, attended by more than 320 guests, raised over $750,000 to support UNICEF’s work around the world. The event honored UNICEF Ambassador, Alyssa Milano, longtime partner, Pier 1 Imports, and NextGen National Development Committee Chair, Sterling McDavid.
 
The evening featured a live auction where a portion of the funds raised benefited UNICEF’s Let Us Learn program, which supports educational projects in Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Liberia, Madagascar and Nepal.

In addition, guests enjoyed an exclusive live performance by country singer Sara Evans.  Thank you to our presenting sponsor, Nancy C. and Richard R. Rogers and all of our sponsors and attendees, for their support and dedication to putting Children First.
