Inside our Global Unity Foundation’s Inaugural Classic New York Gala
At the outset of the United Nation’s General Assembly and Global Goals Week 2018, we launched our Global Unity Foundation‘s East Coast efforts with the Inaugural Classic New York Gala hosted by Mario Lopez.
Global Unity’s mission is to unite the world through humanitarian efforts by working with governments, influential individuals, and organizations to support the eradication of poverty, the advancement of health and wellness, the creation of economic sustainability, and the promotion of universal quality education.
It’s under Global Unity’s programming that our International Arts & Philanthropy Foundation provides training and financial support to visionary community leaders with outstanding start-up charities working to meet the global grand challenges we face. Additional components of Global Unity’s programming and fundraising activities are the 60 socially conscious business accelerations held year-round and throughout the country called CITY SUMMIT, and our annual fundraiser on the evening of the Academy Awards, called CITY GALA. Our overarching mission with Global Unity/IAPF is to promote the Global Goals For Sustainable Development.
A HUGE thank you to Global Unity founder and Executive Producer of Classic NY Gala, Ryan Long, who with a warrior’s attitude for supporting humanitarian causes is simply the most dedicated and hardest working person I’ve ever met. Congrats on an amazing launch, brother!
I also want to thank Mario Lopez for promoting Global Unity, and for hosting one helluva a show for us! Thanks my man!! Here’s a great interview Mario did for Forbes >>>
I especially want to thank Leonardo DiCaprio, Al Pacino, Harrison Ford, Justin Timberlake, and Conor McGregor for the once in a lifetime VIP experiences we were able to auction for charity. This is what it’s all about, and we raised a lot of money for our cause. My deepest, deepest appreciation to all of you. THANK YOU.
To our sponsoring partner who truly exemplifies socially conscious entrepreneurship and leadership in the community – Executive Producer GARY KONG, founder of Classic New York Beer and The 1 Wine… THANK YOU for your support!
