ABN EVENT PRODUCTIONS JOINS FORCES WITH UNICEF FOR FIRST GALA FUNDRAISER WITH PRIYANKA CHOPRA

Sandton based ABN Event Productions announced its association with the first UNICEF Fundraising Gala Dinner in South Africa on May 6, bringing together VIP guests and UNICEF’s Goodwill Ambassador, Priyanka Chopra, as the guest of honour for the evening.

UNICEF, in its important mission to care for, protect children from violence and abuse and applaud achievements by champions for children, will be hosting this exclusive fundraising event at the Hyatt Regency Johannesburg hotel, which coincides with UNICEF’s global ‘Ending Violence against Children’ campaign, this year.



Priyanka Chopra served as a UNICEF national Ambassador in India for nearly ten years and was recently appointed a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador. Apart from being an established Bollywood actress, she currently features in the Hollywood series Quantico and the highly anticipated upcoming action film Baywatch.

“We are exceptionally pleased and excited to be part of such a meaningful event. UNICEF protects and defends the rights of children in South Africa and this gala dinner is one of many important fundraising activities that support many valuable projects, specifically the Child Protection Programme.”

– Head of ABN Event Productions, Alexander Leibner

While South Africa has made impressive economic progress in recent years, progress has not yet translated into gains for all children. Therefore, this fundraising gala dinner will be a key public advocacy moment to recall the joint efforts of the Government of South Africa and UNICEF in ending violence against children which is best reflected in the National Campaign calling on every South African to end violence against children and to create circles of care and protection in their communities.

“The Convention on the Rights of the Child was the first international treaty signed by the first democratic government of South Africa. This indicates South Africa’s strong commitment to children which is enshrined in this country’s globally-admired Constitution. With substantial and sustainable investments made for children over the last 2 decades, South Africa can further unleash the unlimited potential of the nation, by ensuring that no child is left behind.”

– Representative of UNICEF South Africa, Herve Ludovic de Lys




This exclusive evening facilitated by nationally applauded media entrepreneur and UNICEF National Ambassador Jo-Ann Strauss, will bring together international and national celebrities with a  feature a fashion show by renowned fashion designers Gavin Rajah, who also serves as a UNICEF South Africa Ambassador. An unmatched live auction by Gift Ngwenya of Auction Nation will feature rare items for sports fans and collectors alike.
