Over the weekend, UNICEF USA hosted their seventh biennial UNICEF Ball at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel. This black-tie event brings together influencers and supporters of UNICEF to celebrate their humanitarian efforts over the previous two years. This year’s event honored Salma Hayek Pinault with the Danny Kaye Humanitarian Award as well as Nicole Avant and Ted Sarandos who received the Spirit of Compassion Award.

To celebrate their incredible impact on the world, the 600 guests of the ball listened to talks from their major influencers, ambassadors, and contributors as well as musical performances from Pharrell Williams. Some of Showstopper’s Sparkle Society members were also able to attend the ball and celebrated by performing with the Dream Dancers. Sparkle Society members that appeared at ball included Gabe de Guzman, Connor Finnerty, Sharlize True, and Saryna Garcia.
