The 2017 UNICEF Masquerade Ball was held at the iconic Clifton’s Cafeteria on October 27th in Downtown Los Angeles. From the incredible performances by Aluna George, Betty Who, DJ M.O.S. and Le Youth (to name a few) to the stunningly ethereal transformation of Clifton’s Republic, it was truly a night to remember. The evening was presented by FabFitFun.

The event raised over $360,000 to support NextGen’s current fundraising project Empowering Syrian Refugee Women in Jordan + UNICEF's Emergency Relief Fund. $100,000 will provide funding to pilot this UNICEF program in Jordan, which will not only provide livelihood opportunities for Syrian refugee women, but will also work to decrease newborn mortality through the creation of vital neonatal kits. The additional funds raised from this year’s Masquerade Ball will contribute to UNICEF’s Emergency Relief Fund, and ensure UNICEF programs in sanitation and hygiene, nutrition, education, gender-based violence, and more, will continue to operate and reach the world’s most vulnerable populations–particularly in times of emergency, when kids need support the most. UNICEF is the global leader in humanitarian emergencies. This past year alone, UNICEF responded to 344 humanitarian situations in 108 countries and reached 45% of the world’s children.

UNICEF Masquerade Ball is NextGen’s signature annual fundraising event.  We’ve already started thinking about next year’s event and what more we can do to help UNICEF through fun and informative programs like this.
