On October 2, AFAR honored the 2018 Travel Vanguard, visionaries who harness the power of travel to make a difference. The evening started with an awards ceremony at the Paley Center, featuring the honorees and special guests including Erik Weihenmayer, Helen Hill, Larry Pimentel, and Pam Codispoti.

Next, we headed to The Peninsula New York for cocktails, bites, and more celebrations. Silent auction items donated by top travel companies and luxury partners were auctioned in support of Learning AFAR, raising over $40,000.
