LOS ANGELES: Hollywood
Halloween has been in full force for Los Angeles the past 10 days. It appears the charities have also found a reason to raise more money during this festive occasion which leads America into the Thanksgiving season. UNICEF hosted Dia de los Muertos Black & White Masquerade Ball with the sponsorship of Veuve Clicquot. The Hollywood Forever Cemetery became the backdrop again for “lively” people partying amongst the dead.
As posted on the UNICEF website:
“UNICEF’s Next Generation Los Angeles was able to raise over $200K to benefit our NO LOST GENERATION: SYRIA EDUCATION PROJECT.
With these funds, UNICEF will be able to help provide thousands of displaced children with school supplies, learning centers as well as teacher training and materials.
UNICEF Masquerade Balls took place in three cities simultaneously, New York, Los Angeles, and Chicago, raising $460,000 to benefit UNICEF’s education programs for Syrian children.
Thanks to UNICEF’s partnership with the Education Above All Foundation, the funds raised to increase equitable access to education for out of school children in Syria and the surrounding region will be matched to double the impact each gift will have.”
