A huge success! 2010 Health and Human Rights Awards
On June 7, HealthRight International and over 300 friends and supporters gathered in New York at the 2010 Health and Human Rights Awards. We were thrilled to recognize to the incredible work of this year’s awardees: Levi Strauss & Co. and the Ha Noi Women’s Union. We were also proud to host an all star line up including our event chair Dr. Paul Stoffels, host Jon Meacham, award presenters Anand Grover and Bill Roedy, and special guests Naomi Mann, Her Royal Highness Princess Madeleine of Sweden and His Excellency Ambassador Le Luong Minh of Viet Nam.
The Levi Strauss Foundation presented HealthRight with an incredible challenge grant, doubling all donations up to $25,000 in the lead up to and at the event. We not only reached the challenge grant amount, but more than doubled it, breaking our fundraising record for the Health and Human Rights Awards.
Thanks to all of our incredible supporters who enabled us to reach this impressive goal. For a complete list of sponsors and supporters, please see below.
We were also excited to premier a new animated short film, “Two Worlds”, produced by Academy Award winning filmmaker Rob Fried. Click here to see it now!
Thank you once more to our incredible supporters, awardees and participants, and to all of those who made this year’s event such a success.
