On Tuesday, December 1st, The UNICEF Snowflake Ball celebrated the wonderful work UNICEF does for children all over the world. Presented by Mariner Investment Group, LLC and Norell Parfums New York, the evening featured a live performance from Grammy Award winning vocal powerhouse P!NK and honored Orlando Bloom, Mindy Grossman, and Edward G. Lloyd for their incredible work with the organization.
The event raised over $3.4 million dedicated to putting children first, and reminds us how important it is to contribute to our global community. UNICEF is a wonderful place to begin a journey of giving back, and there are many other organizations doing incredible work that need our help as well.
