Venture capitalist Russell Hirsch and his family were honored for their long-term dedication to helping the organization transform lives. Dr. Shafquat Khundkar, ReSurge surgical outreach director in Dhaka, was honored for his 20-years of service and ongoing commitment to the impoverished in Bangladesh.
More than $750,000 was raised to continue providing free reconstructive surgery for the poor in 14 developing countries.
The evening ended with a historic announcement. Gala guests were among the first to learn that Interplast was changing its name and identity to ReSurge International, but that's its mission to provide reconstructive surgery to the world's poor remains the same.
