During the gala, Yours Humanly will recognize Kristi Yamaguchi, Olympic figure skating gold medalist, as its 2020 Honoree for her work with the Always Dream Foundation, the nonprofit she founded that, among other initiatives, champions early childhood literacy in underserved communities and empowers children to dream big. Ms. Yamaguchi is receiving the Yours Humanly Leading With the Heart Award for her vision and leadership on behalf of children.
Gala festivities begin at 5:30pm with a cocktails and hors d'oeuvres reception, and include dinner, silent and live auctions, live entertainment, and dancing. Attendees will have opportunities to meet and welcome Ms. Yamaguchi. Guest speakers also include Miss California Eileen Kim and Mt. Diablo Unified School District Superintendent Dr. Robert Martinez.
Funds from the gala will support Yours Humanly local and global programs, which reach disadvantaged children in the United States, as well as Cambodia, India, Nepal, the Philippines, and Haiti. To date, Yours Humanly has served more than 25,000 children through its two initiatives, Coloring Futures and Bridging Gaps, and its more than 45 distinct programs.

"Yours Humanly's work reaches far beyond village, county, state, and national borders," says Sunny Singh, founder and CEO of Yours Humanly. "Once we have touched the life of a child, the impact is evident in that child's life wherever he or she may journey. And, our work transforms not only the life of that child through the power of education, but that of the child's family, community, and world forever."
