About the Event

The purpose of Rajant’s World Music benefit for UNICEF is to raise funds and awareness for UNICEF’s lifesaving work worldwide. Building on the $125K raised and pledged by Rajant and its generous contributors virtually over the last two years, this “live” experience intends to combat hunger #ForEveryChild through music. The celebration aims to draw on the Philadelphia area’s brightest philanthropists alongside UNICEF Ambassadors for a not-to-be-missed evening featuring musical performances and silent auctions full of exclusive memorabilia donated from some of music’s biggest names and brands.

The 2022 gala will shine light and celebrate the strength of children, including The Orange Box Kids, and showcase a series of stories depicting the courage and resilience of children from around the world impacted by hardships such as the unrest in Ukraine and the Pandemic.

Your support will have real impact to ensure every child is healthy, protected, educated, and respected. The event will be held at the metro’s premier venue for live music, great food, and wine – CITY WINERY Philadelphia.

We hope to see you there! 

Evening Hosted by Denise Richardson

Everyone has a superpower. For Denise Richardson it’s an uncanny ability to connect with anyone—especially with everyone in a room to care about almost any person or issue. It’s no wonder she has co-hosted The Pledge Drive on PBS for more than twenty years. Formerly a Good Morning America correspondent, she was also a lifestyle and news reporter for Fox 5’s Good Day New York, fund-raising emcee/auctioneer and Sopranos guest star, —these are just a few of her other notable titles. Denise truly is a “Pitch Person for Good!”
