29 Mar Experience the Magic of the 10th Anniversary Unstoppable Gala
Wow! What an incredible night!
Thank you to all who joined us to celebrate a decade of dreams fulfilled.
Because of the generosity of our donors, the 10th Anniversary Unstoppable Gala raised more than $1.4MM and an entire community with 50 villages is now off the waiting list! That’s 3,500 men, women and children who will now receive an education and life-saving services.
And, more importantly, they are receiving something that cannot be measured: Hope for a better future.
Here are just a few highlights from this amazing, heartfelt evening:
We were honored to present the Unstoppable Legacy Award to Sandy Gallagher, Co-Founder & CEO of the Proctor Gallagher Institute, for her work to empower millions of lives across the world, including our Unstoppable communities, to realize their full potential.
And a huge congrats to Jane “Mama Jane” Marindany, our Unstoppable Achievement Award honoree, for her work to galvanize her community toward sustainability, becoming a role model and leader, and empowering hundreds of other women in Kenya.
As Master of Ceremony, John O’Hurley (Seinfeld, Dancing with the Stars) led the crowd through a journey of laughter and entertainment, while presenters including award-winning Producer, Writer, Director Lee Daniels (Precious, Empire) offered words of inspiration.
Auctioneer Shawn Parr wowed us with his energy and flair, bringing us our biggest auction results ever! The once-in-a-lifetime auction experiences ranged from one-on-one coaching with Jack Canfield and Patty Aubery, the team who built a billion dollar brand, to a weekend cruise on a private luxury yacht, to Bulletproof Founder Dave Aspreys’ 40 Years of Zen program.
Seema Leina, Unstoppable Scholar from Kenya, shared her inspiring story of how she is pursuing her dream of receiving a college education and expressed her gratitude on behalf of her community for what our donors have made possible.
And Janice Freeman (The Voice) rocked the house with her passionate, soulful vocals, delivering outstanding performances, including a powerful rendition of “This is Me” from The Greatest Showman.
These are just a few of the amazing moments we experienced at the 10th Anniversary Unstoppable Gala. Stay tuned for more updates to follow!
