When the headlines fade and the world turns away, the International Rescue Committee holds steady, helping refugees and displaced people not only to survive, but to recover and rebuild their lives. Rescue Dinner is our signature annual fundraising gala bringing together more than 500 luminaries from the corporate, philanthropic, diplomatic and media communities in support of our vital humanitarian work around the world. Throughout the evening guests will step behind the headlines with us and experience firsthand how their support directly impacts the people we serve.

Thank you to our generous partners
