The event will feature UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador Sir Roger Moore, actor Barry Bostwick and a performance by UNICEF's newest National Ambassador, the Grammy Award winning singer songwriter India Arie.The UNICEF Snowflake Lighting Ceremony will be aired live during a one-hour special on CBS 2. The lighting ceremony will be preceded on November 16 by the first annual UNICEF Snowflake Ball, presented by Baccarat, at the Waldorf Astoria Hotel, hosted by Bryant Gumbel and featuring Grammy-winning jazz vocalist Dianne Reeves.

The U.S. Fund for UNICEF will shine a light on children's champions at this black-tie fundraiser, presenting the Audrey Hepburn Humanitarian Award to Sir Roger Moore, longtime UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador.
