“The 7th Tibet Fund Annual Gala represents an important milestone for us as we celebrate 35 years of exemplary service and contribution to Tibetan communities in India, Nepal, Bhutan, and Tibet. Throughout the Tibetan people’s struggle, The Tibet Fund has been critical in funding and managing vital programs in various areas including education, health, and refugee rehabilitation.
The Annual Gala is also a time for our friends and supporters to convene together, while acknowledging individuals who have made striding efforts in supporting the Tibetan Cause. This year, we are honoring Leader Nancy Pelosi, Congressman Jim McGovern and Dr. Kazuko Hillyer Tatsumura who have been longstanding friends and supporters of the Tibetan people. In their own way, each has contributed to the work of The Tibet Fund and helped to sustain our culture and faith. On this special occasion, we will also pay special tribute to our dear friend, Melissa Mathison.
