UNICEF USA and the Gala Leadership is proud to present the 6th annual UNICEF Gala Houston to celebrate the outstanding humanitarian leaders who make our work possible. The evening’s event will raise critical funds for UNICEF’s lifesaving work and focus on bringing the community together to raise awareness of global and domestic issue that need our help. The evening would not be possible without the support of the Albert and Margaret Alkek Foundation. Each year, the Margaret Alkek Williams Humanitarian Award commemorates the legacy of her extraordinary dedication to the health and well-being of children in Houston and around the world. As one of UNICEF’s largest fundraisers, the high profile black-tie evening has thus far raised over $4.7 million for UNICEF’s programs worldwide.
