UN Women for Peace Gala Dinner

April 17, 2009

This first-time event at the Metropolitan Club in New York City included a cocktail reception with silent auction, seated gala dinner and award presentation by Mrs. Ban Soon-taek, the wife of the Secretary General to the UN and the Patron of the organization, to Nobel Peace Prize Laureate Jody Williams. More than 180 people attended, many requiring dignitary event protocol, and contributed $120,000 for scholarships for women to attend the University of Peace in Costa Rica.

On behalf of the UN Women for Peace, I want to convey our thanks to Ginger for her excellent work on the UN Women for Peace gala Benefit Dinner on April 17, 2009. She met with our Executive Committee, listened to our ideas and started working. Her work was very professional and the event was a great success. We have had many letters from the participants commenting on what a great evening this was. Thank you, Ginger.
