Following a record-breaking campaign that raised $4.95 million to support children around the world, UNICEF USA held its 15th annual Snowflake Ball Tuesday.

Emanating from Cipriani in New York City, the event welcomed singer, actress and UNICEF supporter Sofia Carson as host.

Priyanka Chopra Jonas, meanwhile, received the Danny Kaye Humanitarian Award for her years of work in support of empowering children and young people.

“Philanthropy today has gone beyond just fundraising projects,” said Chopra Jonas. “Be disruptive, show compassion and care; be catalytic in our actions and solutions. Giving back is no longer a choice, it has to be a way of life.”

Following the event, UNICEF shared a collection of press photos from the festivities. More details on UNICEF’s efforts are available here.
