Pearl S. Buck International has three signature fundraising events which directly support our mission and programs.

A perennial sellout, Taste of the World is an elegant affair that showcases the area’s best cuisine and attracts more than 300 corporate and community leaders from across the Greater Philadelphia area. Held on the third Friday in May, the annual event includes a wildly popular Top Taste culinary competition and live and silent auctions.

Since 1978, the Pearl S. Buck International Woman of Influence award (previously Woman of the Year) has honored women who, like Nobel and Pulitzer prize-winning author and humanitarian Pearl S. Buck, have distinguished themselves in their career, devotion to family and pursuit of humanitarian goals. Past honorees, including Laura Bush and Esther Hewlett, represent an elite group of women who have transformed the lives of others through their unselfish acts, dedication and commitment. This year’s event is April 28.

The Living the Legacy Fundraising Breakfast is a complimentary event that celebrates our founder’s legacy by illuminating some of the over two million lives that have been changed.  This year’s event is on Friday, October 6.

In addition to our three signature fundraising events, we are pleased to offer many community events that promote the life and legacy of our founder. Please click here to view our events calendar.
