Special Events

Ambassadors’ Ball –

18 December 2023

at the Metropolitan Club

The Ambassadors’ Ball is the HCUND’s elegant annual benefit and primary fundraiser inviting guests from the diplomatic and business communities for cocktails, fine dining, dancing, as well as a silent auction.

Ambassadors from around the world attend and each year, 15-20 UN Ambassadors donate dinners hosted at their residences to our Silent Auction. These dinners are the most popular items in the Silent Auction and have been appreciated and enjoyed by both hosts and guests as a lovely way for the United Nations community and its New York City guests to meet and learn more about each other. 


Welcome Events

The Hospitality Committee hosts two Welcome Events a year, usually a Morning Coffee or Afternoon Tea, in the Fall and Spring, as a way to reach out to newly arrived UN Delegates and their spouses and introduce them to the activities of HCUND.

It is an opportunity for newly arrived families from different missions to meet each other as well as hear directly from HCUND volunteers about our mission, resources for newcomers to New York, how to register for our events, and information about upcoming programs.

During the past year we have been holding our Welcome Coffees on Zoom, but we look forward to hosting everyone in person when it is safe to do so.
