The UNICEF Gala Boston is a one-of-a-kind evening of UNICEF's work in over 190 countries as well as a tribute to the outstanding humanitarian leaders who make our work possible.  Since its inception, the event has honored remarkable individuals and raised over $8 million for UNICEF’s work to save and improve children’s lives around the world. The UNICEF Children’s Champion Award has been presented to notable philanthropists including Nelson Mandela, Queen Noor, Princess Caroline, David Ortiz, the Boston Celtics, Sting & Trudie Styler, Lauren Bush Lauren & David Lauren, Heidi Klum, Pedro & Carolina Martinez, and Yo-Yo Ma. This year we are thrilled to present the award to Lawrence O'Donnell.
