In 1947 UNIS was founded by a group of UN parents to provide an international education that emphasized academic excellence and fostered global understanding within a caring community. Celebrate this milestone with us at unis70th.org.
SPECIALTY COCKTAILS TO BE PROVIDED COURTESY OF:
Pat Kiernan of NY 1
will be our emcee for the evening!
Pat Kiernan is familiar to us as a UNIS parent, but to most New Yorkers as part of their morning routine since 1997, when he became the morning anchor for NY1 News. He’s best known for his daily "In the Papers" feature, where he summarizes the colorful content of New York City's local papers with a combination of insight, analysis and deadpan humor.
With his NY1 routine a constant for the past 19 years, Pat enjoys taking on a wide range of other broadcasting assignments. He’s been the host of several national game shows, including VH1’s “World Series of Pop Culture.” Pat is often asked to appear “as himself” in movies and TV programs. “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt,” “Billions” and “Money Monster” are among his most recent appearances, and he’s scheduled to be part of the upcoming “Ghostbusters” remake. In 2012, Pat was among Kelly Ripa’s co-hosts on “Live! with Kelly.”
Auctioneer CK Swett
will be leading the live auction!
CK Swett, a California native and Duke University graduate, began his career in the auction world in 2006, and has worked at Christie’s, Phillips and Heritage during the intervening ten years. In 2016, he founded Lot 1 with former Christie’s colleague, Charles Antin, in order to better address the critical importance of not-for-profit fundraising.

UNIS Mission and History
Established in 1947 for families associated with the United Nations, The United Nations International School (UNIS) is an independent school in New York City. Taught by faculty representing 32 countries, students receive an academically rigorous international education in nine languages that prepares them to become an active force in shaping a more peaceful, compassionate and sustainable world.
The school’s founding mission 68 years ago is still as relevant today: providing a global education while preserving its students' diverse cultural heritages. Today, UNIS has nearly 1600 students on two campuses: the campus in Jamaica Estates, Queens is a K-8 school and the Manhattan campus, overlooking the East River, is K-12.
