The Resolution Project Hosts 9th Annual Resolve Gala

| October 11, 2018 | Parties

On Thursday, October 11, 2018, The Resolution Project hosted its 9th Annual Resolve Gala at the Harvard Club, celebrating ten years of supporting college-age social entrepreneurs as they create meaningful impact around the world. The gala this year was a particularly meaningful one, as benefactors and supporters of the organization came together to celebrate the rapid expansion the organization has seen over its ten years in operation. Resolution Fellows now work in more than 75 countries and all across the United States, and have helped more than 1.5 million people and counting through their impactful ventures. Resolution’s World of Sustainability exhibit was a highlight of the evening, showcasing seven social ventures through interactive installations ranging from portable, earthquake-resistant school structures, to a creative display of the clothing design skills taught to socially marginalized women in Greece, to renewable energy education in the United States. After remarks, Grammy Award-winning American hip hop trio Naughty By Nature took to the stage, with special appearances by Dres from Black Sheep and world-class beatboxer Rahzel, for a high-energy set. The evening brought together VIPs, social entrepreneurs, philanthropists, and business leaders to raise proceeds that will go directly toward supporting Resolution Fellows and their ventures. Attendees also enjoyed hors d’oeuvres, an open bar, and a live and silent auction. Sponsors of the event included Aramark, Macquarie Group, Hatzimemos/Libby, Mastercard, DuPont, White & Case, Perkins Coie, JPMorgan Chase, and Kirkland & Ellis.
