The 2017 Women of Concern Awards Luncheon, hosted by Concern Worldwide US in New York in June, raised over $450,000 to advance Concern’s work fighting extreme poverty, a new record. Over 500 guests championed Concern’s work changing the lives of women and girls globally, and celebrated honorees Carrie Craigmyle, SVP account director at PHD Media, and #1 New York Times bestselling author Gretchen Rubin.
