About the Masquerade Ball


The UNICEF Masquerade Ball is UNICEF Next Generation’s signature philanthropic event. Masked guests, dressed in their finest attire, dance the night away in celebration and support of UNICEF’s lifesaving work. Over 800 emerging global leaders, innovators, celebrities and philanthropists attend the UNICEF Masquerade Ball each year.

What is NextGen?

UNICEF Next Generation (NextGen) is a group of young (or young at heart!) leaders, entrepreneurs and innovators who commit their resources, resolve and enthusiasm toward supporting UNICEF’s lifesaving work. We study issues that affect children around the world and choose UNICEF projects to support through education, advocacy, skill sharing/remote volunteering and fundraising. We host a number of events and activities to mobilize our networks and inspire our peers and our entire generation to take action on behalf of the world’s most vulnerable children.
