UNICEF Ambassadors, Whoopi Goldberg and Lucy Liu Join Quincy Jones to Help UNICEF Usher in the Holiday Season by Lighting the New UNICEF Crystal Snowflake and Attend the Snowflake Ball

On November 28th, the largest outdoor chandelier of its kind, which sparkles with 16, 000 glittering Baccarat crystals -- will grace the intersection of Fifth Avenue and 57th Street in Manhattan for the entire holiday season. It will be lit by actresses and UNICEF Ambassadors Lucy Liu and Whoopi Goldberg, during a special outdoor ceremony featuring Quincy Jones and a performance by the Brooklyn Youth Choir. Also lighting the UNICEF Snowflake will be children orphaned by last year's tsunami and survivors of Hurricane Katrina. A black-tie fundraising gala, hosted by Bryant Gumbel, is also taking place in conjunction with the UNICEF Snowflake lighting and will include performances by Tierney Sutton and her jazz ensemble and a special award presentation for Quincy Jones.
