40 years of expanding choice

FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 11

Salt Lake Marriott Downtown at City Creek

People everywhere deserve to have a choice and a path out of poverty.

This vision for CHOICE Humanitarian was established during its humble beginnings as the Andean Children’s Foundation in 1982. Flash forward four decades, and CHOICE has grown into a global organization that is changing the world.

For this year’s gala, we will honor and celebrate the past 40 years of impacting over 2 million people, funding over 2,000 projects, and serving over 750 communities globally. We will also look at what more we can do to expand choice for those living in devastating poverty.

AN EVENING ABOUT CHANGING THE WORLD

At the 40th anniversary gala, we'll celebrate the amazing impact that we've seen over four decades in the rural communities where CHOICE works—and discuss the opportunity we have to continually expand the range of options for underserved individuals and families.

THE EVENING'S PROGRAM WILL INCLUDE:

  • Inspiring speakers, including CHOICE Country Directors
  • Presentation of the 2022 James B. Mayfield Humanitarian Award to Niels Valentiner
  • Live & silent auction
  • Entertainment and socializing
