Join us in celebration of United Nations Day on October 24th at the Gilcrease Museum. Once a year, a singular convening gathers individuals, businesses, and organizations in support of diplomacy, international cooperation, and local education programs. The annual United Nations Day Dinner is the organization's top annual event, offering an exclusive perspective on the organization's work, priorities, and partnerships, while delivering participants the chance to engage with change-makers in the local community. This year United Nations Day is in honor of Dr. Dayal Meshri, the 2017 Ambassador Edwin G. Corr Global Citizenship Award recipient. The UNA EO awards outstanding individuals whose professional, volunteer, or civic activities have supported the internationalization of Eastern Oklahoma. Joseph Opala, guest speaker, will speak on "The Gullah Connection." The 2017 event celebrates the Global Goals through local leadership and is raising funds in efforts to expand its support of Model United Nations programs to area schools.
