On June 25, 2014, Concern Worldwide U.S. hosted the 12th Annual Women of Concern Awards luncheon, honoring the organization’s co-founder Siobhan Walsh, and award-winning actress and Concern Worldwide Global Ambassador Toni Collette.

“It was an incredibly special day for our community as we honored Siobhan Walsh, without whom Concern Worldwide U.S. would not exist,” says Dr. Joseph Cahalan, CEO of Concern Worldwide U.S. “We were also thrilled to formally recognize our Global Ambassador, Toni Collette, who is using her celebrity to shine a light on the needs of people living in some of the most neglected and vulnerable places on earth.”

Siobhan and Toni were received on the stage with standing ovations, and members of the Concern community were thrilled to show their support for these incredible women. Held at the Pierre Hotel, it was the most successful luncheon in Concern’s history, with over 400 guests and over $384,000 raised for Concern’s programs fighting poverty.

It was a truly remarkable day, and Concern thanks everyone who helped to make this day possible.
