2019 Changemaker Gala Highlights

Last night, the Greenwich International Film Festival hosted the 5th annual Changemaker Honoree Gala. This year we presented Bobby Walker Jr. with the Community Changemaker Award and Eva Longoria with the Changemaker Award.

The night began with a Cocktail Reception at Betteridge. Guests then moved down to L’Escale Restaurant & Bar for the Gala, where our honorees were presented with their awards. A huge thank you to Ashforth for providing the shuttles for guests to get from Betteridge to L’Escale. Diageo created 4 custom (and delicious) GIFF cocktails that guests sipped on as they headed to their tables, which were decorated with beautiful flowers by Bow and Rose.

Thank you to our amazing honorees, Bobby and Eva. Their speeches were thought-provoking, captivating, and inspired us all to help  make in impact in our communities by helping those who do not have the same access to opportunities as others. Thank you to the extremely talented Kathie Lee Gifford for acting as the Master of Ceremonies for the evening, and MOJO for keeping the crowd entertained!

Thank you to our sponsors for the evening: Betteridge, Moffly Media, Diageo, Bow & Rose and MOJO.
