Stand Up for the World’s Children is UNICEF Next Generation Chicago's Winter 2018 premiere philanthropic event. Guests will be transported to a glamorous Hollywood evening held at ArtSpace8 in 900 N Michigan Shops while they listen to an inspirational program in celebration and support of UNICEF’s lifesaving work and women’s empowerment. The evening will include paparazzi style photography and videography, live music by Groove Animal, Hors-d'Oeuvres and an open bar. There will also be a UNICEF Virtual Reality experience, Hollywood themed entertainment & games, a silent auction, gift bags, and much more! Over 300 of Chicago's emerging leaders and philanthropists will be in attendance.
This year's event aims to support UNICEF Next Generation's national campaign, launching the UNICEF pilot program for Syrian refugee women and newborns in Jordan, and supporting the UNICEF Emergency Relief Fund (ERF) currently providing life-saving interventions in seven level 3 emergencies in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Iraq, Nigeria, South Sudan, Syria and surrounding territories, the Rohingya Refugee Crisis, and Yemen. Contributions to the ERF are donations which UNICEF allocates towards rapid, effective intervention when and where children need it most in any of the 190 countries and territories in which UNICEF works, helping save and improve the maximum number of young lives.
UNICEF Next Generation brings together young philanthropists, business leaders, celebrities and others in their 20s and 30s who are committed to UNICEF’s work to save and improve children’s lives. UNICEF and its partners have saved the lives of more children than any other humanitarian organization. From providing children with clean drinking water, school books, and medicine, to protecting them during conflict and emergencies - UNICEF puts children first.
