The 2019 NHEF Benefit Gala & Awards Ceremony

The NHEF commemorates the efforts of trailblazing Nigerians who we believe have contributed to the country’s prosperity both at home and abroad. We believe that in recognizing these outstanding achievements we are reshaping Nigeria’s image on the global stage and changing the narrative on what it means to be Nigerian. Through this, we hope to inspire and motivate the next generation of Nigerian leaders.

This year’s gala will take place on Wednesday, September 25th from 6:00 P.M. to 9:00 P.M. at The Pierre Hotel in New York City.
