The Rescue Dinner is the International Rescue Committee’s signature annual fundraising gala. The event brings together more than 800 luminaries from the corporate, philanthropic, diplomatic and media communities in support of our vital humanitarian work around the world.
For more than 80 years the mission of the International Rescue Committee has been to provide aid and sanctuary to refugees and families caught in the world's worst humanitarian crises. At this time in history, when 24 people are forced from their homes every minute, our work has never been more needed.
Let us come together at this event to affirm the values of compassion and empathy, to unite against fear and hatred, and to support refugees and families in crisis.
During this special evening, we will honor Michael Bloomberg for his commitment to improving the lives of people around the world and Liv Ullmann for her compassionate advocacy on behalf of refugees and families caught in crisis.
