New York – On Thursday, October 15th, The Resolution Project hosted its Resolve Gala at the Harvard Club of New York City, to honor the accomplishments of Resolution Fellows— inspirational young leaders who are changing the world while still enrolled as undergraduate students. Honorary Co-Chairs Gabriela Isler and Estelle, along with Host Committee members Kelly Rutherford, Natasha Bedingfield, Mario Cantone, Jack Brewer, Candice Kumai, and Andy Hunt supported the evening’s celebration of these global changemakers.
Resolve 2015 showcased seven installations that creatively displayed Fellows’ impact across issue areas. The evening brought together notable celebrities, social entrepreneurs, philanthropists, and business leaders to raise proceeds that will benefit and empower a global community of young leaders through collaborative social entrepreneurship.
Grammy Award winning artist Estelle performed live at the gala. “I am honored to share in this evening and thrilled to be partnered with The Resolution Project. Everything they stand for is exactly what my organization, All of Me represents. I am excited for this opportunity and the ways we will work together in the future – the bigger the village, the better.”
Guests included Orange Is the New Black and Emmy Award winning actress Uzo Aduba, Miss Universe 2013 Gabriela Isler, former Miss Ethiopia and Seeds of Africa Founder Atti Worku, among others.
