All funds raised at this year’s gala will continue to support GO Campaign’s efforts for global Covid-19 Relief and efforts to achieve racial justice for youth in the US. In addition this year, funds raised will support education for at-risk children in Africa and Latin America and for girls in Afghanistan.
GO Campaign has once again enlisted a slate of young activists in Hollywood to raise awareness for GO’s mission locally in Los Angeles and around the world. These young activists, known as Changemakers, include Minka Kelly, Brandon Flynn, Geraldine Viswanathan, Max Carver, Alex MacNicoll, Torrance Coombs and Abigail Cowen among others. Despite being unable to host the gala in-person, GO Campaign is letting no obstacle stand in the way of being able to engage with our community on a global level and come together to continue to change the lives of thousands of children from East Africa to East Los Angeles.
GO Campaign’s gala on October 23rd will be completely free and accessible to viewers around the world with the hopes of inspiring viewers to become a part of the impactful change GO Campaign brings to communities across the globe. The gala’s online auction will raise meaningful funds for the organization and feature exclusive travel, shopping and dining experiences, including a one-of-a-kind Paris trip with tickets courtesy of Air France. Along with getting the chance to win auction items donated by celebrity guests, viewers can look forward to feature appearances from other notable guests.
