Take a stand, show your support for a sustainable future, join UNDP’s Inaugural 50th Anniversary Host Committee, a group of individuals, celebrities, and company leaders who are taking the lead to support and publicize UNDP’s Gala. Celebrities help by generating publicity and lending their name to the event and invitation, while other individual and company “hosts” commit to buying a table or ticket early, and help to publicize and recruit others - individuals and companies in their networks - to support the Gala. Host Committee members will receive special recognition and exclusive access to UN events, briefings, and a personalized tour of the UN with UNDP leadership this fall.
