The Unstoppable Foundation held its seventh annual Unstoppable Gala on Saturday, March 19, at the JW Marriott Live in downtown Los Angeles, where Scottsdale resident Bob Proctor was honored with the Unstoppable Legacy Award.

Philanthropic celebrities, business and thought leaders, best-selling authors, and professional athletes, helped make the evening a success including Anne Archer, Dyan Cannon, Henry Winkler, Melanie Griffith, Ron Moss, David Meltzer, Leigh Steinberg, and athletes including Warren Moon, Marcellus Wiley, Jim Leyritz and Christian Okoye, according to a press release.

Best-selling author, Jack Canfield has called the Unstoppable Gala, “the Oscars of the transformational industry.”  The theme of the evening was “One Child Can Change the World” and it was demonstrated over and over by the honorees, and presentations that evening.

The 2016 event was the most successful gala to-date, according to the release.

Dyan Cannon opened the festivities, featuring performances by the Joy Enriquez, Heavenly Joy, LA Inner City Mass Choir, The Monster Kids and Carmel Twillie. Cynthia Kersey, founder and CEO of the Unstoppable Foundation, presented the foundation’s first ever Unstoppable Legacy Award to Scottsdale resident, and longtime supporter, Bob Proctor.

Mr. Proctor is a legendary figure in the world of personal development and was one of the key figures in the best-selling book and movie, “The Secret.”

Highlights of the program included a powerful speech by Faith Cherop, one of the Unstoppable Foundation Kenyan students who will graduate from high school this year. Faith was among the first primary students to receive support from the Unstoppable Foundation.

The Unstoppable Foundation is a non-profit humanitarian organization bringing sustainable education to children and communities in developing countries, thereby creating a safer and just world for everyone.
