About the Impact Gala

The WASH Foundation presents our Inaugural Impact Gala in Orlando, Florida, on Thursday, October 24th, at 6:00 p.m. EST at the Hilton Orlando, honoring outstanding champions in the fight against the global water crisis, celebrating the organization’s impact and accomplishments, and shining a spotlight on our current programs and priorities. 

The evening’s program will feature several awards, including The Luis Spitz Excellence Award, which honors the dedication and legacy of those who have demonstrated their commitment to our mission. The award recognizes recipients who embody the true spirit of sustainability, value resilience, and work toward transforming the lives of the underserved, as well as a legacy of partnership with The WASH Foundation.  Luis Spitz, whom the award is named after, was the epitome of all these attributes.  Mr. Spitz was the “Godfather of Soap” and the chief donor to The WASH Foundation’s soap museum. It is an honor to dedicate this award in his name.
