UNICEF USA to Host the Third Annual Gala Dallas and Honor Jessica and Dirk Nowitzki with the Spirit of Compassion Award

February 7 @ 6:30 pm - 11:00 pm


One of the things that I love about Dallas is its spirit of giving and generosity.  Pick a day and there will be an opportunity to give, to share the blessings we’ve been given and thank some of the people that are doing great work for our community and so many others. Save the date for February 7, 2020 for a fabulous black tie evening at the Ritz Carlton honoring Dallas’ own Jessica and Dirk Nowitzki, UNICEF Germany Ambassador and Spirit of Compassion Award recipients.  For more details, see below.  As we get closer, we’ll share more about the life-changing work of UNICEF.


What:               The North Texas Regional Office of UNICEF USA will host the third annual UNICEF Gala Dallas. Funds raised at the event will support UNICEF’s work to save and improve the lives of the world’s most vulnerable children.


The evening will honor UNICEF Germany Ambassador and longtime UNICEF USA supporters Jessica and Dirk Nowitzki with the Spirit of Compassion Award for their years of dedication and advocacy for children around the world. Country group King Calaway will give a special acoustic performance. Immediately following event there will be an After Glow Lounge, presented by Bullion.


Why:                UNICEF works in more than 190 countries and territories around the world and has saved more children’s lives than any other humanitarian organization.
