The Gala, which celebrated Yes’ extraordinary 20 years of changing lives through education, brought in over $5M for the organization. The special event was hosted by select Yes scholars and alumni, and was presented by The Walt Disney Company.
Mellody Hobson and David Geffen served as Co-Chairs for the Gala. The two took to the stage to introduce honorees Willow Bay and Bob Iger, and present them each with a Yes Award for their generous contributions over the years. Beyond providing invaluable resources for students, Bay and Iger have personally advocated for and supported scholars, from arranging school transportation to championing grants and charitable partnerships.
