Jayson Schkloven and I had the immense honor of joining Samsung last night at the 2018 Samsung Charity Gala. Held at the Manhattan Center in New York, the 17th annual event raised proceeds for Samsung’s charity partners through its ‘Samsung Gives’ philanthropic programming. Last night, more than $3 million dollars were raised.  Since 2011, efforts have raised more than $75 million throughout the U.S., benefitting more than 2,600 schools, hospitals, and foundations.

The star-studded event was truly a night to remember. President and CEO of Samsung Electronics North America Tim Baxter was joined onstage with a host of personalities including Ryan Seacrest, Matthew McConaughey, Kristen Bell, Mariska Hargitay, Victor Cruz, Boomer Esiason and others - all dancing to the beat of musical guest Pitbull.

Our work with Samsung has been incredibly rewarding and we had the pleasure of celebrating with our Samsung clients. There’s nothing better than supporting a company like Samsung who is so committed to making a difference in our communities, with values that resonate with ours.
