Last Thursday Helen Keller International had its 4th Annual Gala at 583 Park Ave honoring David Green who is an Ashoka Fellow and a leading social entrepreneur whose innovations in technology and distribution have helped make healthcare accessible and affordable in developing countries. The Humanitarian award went to Johnson and Johnson and the Legacy award to Christies. After cocktails downstairs and dinner upstairs there was a lively auction led by Christopher Burge. The night raised over $500,000. Last year I travelled to Vietnam with HKI to visit rural clinics. It was an eye opening experience.
