Luisa Diaz Foundation to Host Milestone 10th Anniversary Black Tie MAG Gala

The Luisa Diaz Foundation will celebrate a milestone 10th anniversary black tie MAG gala on Wednesday, May 15th, 2024 at The Plaza Hotel. The annual event this year will honor a decade of changing lives in communities across America with 2024 focusing on two organizations - Safe Passage Heals and Sanctuary for Families. It will be a grand “Celebration of Kindness” attended by important international changemakers from across the globe. It all is part of the organization’s motto that “kindness is cool.” Last year Mayor Adams proclaimed May 18th (the date of the gala) as “Kindness is Cool Day” in NYC forevermore. Events celebrating that day are also being planned.

An all-star lineup of presenters and performers will dedicate the night to honorees and the organizations that are collectively shinning a light on the dangers of human trafficking and sharing support for the fight to help domestic violence survivors. The subjects are often not focused on, and the event hopes to spread much-needed awareness.

The Luisa Diaz foundation proudly honors these grassroot organizations and exemplary individuals who have made significant humanitarian and philanthropic contributions.

Additionally, the “Runway of Hope” where fashion meets compassion will once again be a part of the program. The runway show celebrates women survivors as well as one trans person survivor this year who will walk the runway after going through the program for a year and further training sessions of confidence-building and styling provided by the Luisa Diaz Foundation. The emphasis is placed on not it being a show about style, but rather a prolific moment that can forever re-shape the life of a person who has suffered from past abuse. The new beginning and moving toward a place of light and hope starts when they take the stage and walk proud with each step breaking the chains of oppression.
