Family Charities to Celebrate 25 Years – at Asia Society NYC

New York, N.Y. The Board of Directors of Orphans International Worldwide and the James Jay Dudley Luce Foundation have announced plans to celebrate their twenty-fifth anniversary next autumn at New York’s Asia Society.

“Twenty-five years ago, driven by the inspiration of my adoption of an infant from Indonesia and my mother, a child psychologist, we established our first home for children in Indonesia, thus giving birth to Orphans International,” Jim Luce states. “Influenced by the teachings of my college professor father, the J. Luce Foundation emerged, aligning with our joint mission of Raising, Supporting & Educating Young Global Leaders over the past two decades,” Jim adds.

Colombia, the Dominican Republic, Ghana, Greece, Guyana, Haiti, India, Indonesia, Israel, Jamaica, Japan, Liberia, Malawi,
Myanmar, Nepal, Pakistan, Palestine, the Philippines, Peru, Sri Lanka, Taiwan, Tanzania, Tibet, Ukraine, and Vietnam

The theme of this 25th anniversary evening will be ‘Peace is possible even in the face of senseless violence. Young global leadership embraces nonviolent conflict resolution.’

Highlighting the event will be the presentation of the prestigious Claire Boothe Luce Award for Public Service, alongside the Luce 24 Under 24 Recognition Awards.

The collective efforts of Orphans International and the J. Luce Foundation have empowered youth and enriched communities globally, as well as here in New York City, raising over two million dollars and impacting the lives of over two thousand young individuals.

The Silver Anniversary Reception will take place in the Luce Penthouse of the Asia Society, situated on Park Avenue at 70th Street, New York City. A 30-second spot has been created to publicize the event, courtesy of Triumph Communications. National attire is encouraged for the occasion.

“This is a significant milestone for us,” Jim says. “As we assemble our Host Committee and extend invitations to public and diplomatic officials, we ask our friends to confirmation via email or text at 347-316-7087.”

The original sculpture of The Knotted Gun also known as “Non-Violence” was created by Swedish artist Carl Fredrik Reuterswärd, a friend of John Lennon‘s family. Reuterswärd created this piece of art after Lennon’s tragic death as he wanted to honor the singer’s vision of a peaceful world.

The event will be held in the Henry Luce Penthouse of the Asia Society.
