Our 2019 gala was incredibly successful thanks to the collective effort and dedication of gala co-chairs Mae Hsieh, Susanna Hong, and Yinan Xia (all pictured above), honorary co-chairs Alina Cho, Cecilia Pagkalinawan, and Ai-Jen Poo, and event strategist Kacey Koeppel. With profound gratitude, we thank Merv Garretson of Hearst Communications and Janet Akie Masamitsu for their creative vision and direction, and Jen Epstein for her animation talent. Special thanks to the incredible VaynerMedia for their pro bono video work with Womankind, Mission Media, and Womankind Advocate Nusrat Siraj and her client for sharing their story. Of course, our fundraising goal would not be possible without the auctioning prowess of CK Swett. We also thank entertainers DJ Benny Blanco and the Resistance Revival Chorus (pictured below) for wow-ing the crowd with their collective, powerful voice. A beautiful thank you to Trestique for touching up makeup for guests. And finally, the evening went smoothly thanks to the amazing teamwork of Womankind staff volunteers, Kacey's team, and Give Smart.
