During the evening, Yours Humanly recognized 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. Yamaguchi received the Yours Humanly Leading With the Heart Award for her vision and leadership on behalf of children.
Guest speakers included Miss California Eileen Kim and Mt. Diablo Unified School District Superintendent Dr. Robert Martinez.
Funds from the gala will support Yours Humanly educational 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 46 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."
