Bpeace Blog Briefs

Stories of bravery, transformation and impact.

What an incredible night! Bpeace took over the Samsung Experience for an evening of dancing, drinking, munching, and schmoozing all in the name of creating One Million Jobs.

We auctioned off Daily Show tickets, took photos on the "red carpet," and had the opportunity to meet New York Times best selling author and emcee for the night, Gayle Tzemach Lemmon. With the help of Samsung, we highlighted our members, Fast Runners, and the countries in which we work on high definition screens--ranging from pocket-size to an entire wall. We ate a tower of Butter Lane cupcakes and kept things cool with heaping scoops of Blue Marble ice cream.

Fundraising awards were given out to a few select Bpeacers who went above and beyond to make our One Million Jobs campaign a big success.

  • The Top Fundraiser Award, bringing in money from over 60 donors, went to Susan McPherson.
  • The Top Young Professional Fundraising Award went to Delilah Rothenberg.
  • The Top New Bpeace Member Fundraising Award went to both Karen Vander Linde and Mallory Martino.

A special shout out to other Bpeace members who met or surpassed the $1,000 OMJ fundraising goal:

Loretta Davis, Ann Callison, Kara Castagna, Toni Maloney, Gita Patel, Stephen Kulovits, Liz Pulver, Dana Kuznetzkoff, Neil Charran, Meave Murphy, Karoline Barwinski, Biz Ghormley, Khristine Queja, Donna Fleetwood, Pamela Massenburg, Sabra Richardson, Monica Sanz, Aliana Pineiro, and Fahima Ahad.

The night capped the end of a four-month grassroots fundraising campaign that brought nearly 700 donors to Bpeace .  The campaign would not have been possible without the diligent coordination of the OMJ11 co-chairs:

Karoline Barwinski, Kara Castagna, Neil Charran, Biz Ghormley, Pam Massenburg,  Susan McPherson, Aliana Pineiro, Delilah Rothenberg, Nicole Stipp, Joanna Szaro, and Lori White.

A very special thank you to our incredible sponsors for the evening:
