Stamford, CT - Pulitzer Prize winners Nicholas Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn will be the guest speakers at the AmeriCares Airlift Benefit on September 20, 2014. The authors of the best-seller “Half the Sky” will speak about giving back, making an impact and their latest book, “A Path Appears – Transforming Lives, Creating Opportunity,” during the gala at Westchester County Airport.

The husband and wife team also coauthored two previous books “Thunder from the East” and “China Wakes.” They were awarded a Pulitzer Prize in 1990 for their coverage of China and in 2009 were awarded the Dayton Literary Peace Prize. An op-ed columnist for The New York Times, Kristof was previously bureau chief in Hong Kong, Beijing and Tokyo. He won his second Pulitzer in 2006 for his columns on Darfur. WuDunn worked at The Times as a business editor and foreign correspondent in Tokyo and Beijing and now works in banking.

Now in its 27th year, the AmeriCares Airlift Benefit is an inspirational evening celebrating AmeriCares global health and disaster relief work. NBC News’ Weekend TODAY Co-Host Erica Hill will serve as Master of Ceremonies. The gala begins at 6 p.m. and culminates with a group of guests departing on an exciting 24-hour journey to Nicaragua to see AmeriCares aid programs in action.

AmeriCares saves lives and restores health by delivering medicines, medical supplies and humanitarian aid to people in need across the United States and around the world.
