Selena Gomez and other celebrities embraced the holiday spirit at UNICEF’s annual Snowflake Ball gala at Cipriani 42nd Street in Manhattan. The evening celebrated the annual lighting of the UNICEF Snowflake in the city as well as honored some of the charity’s hard-working humanitarians. Gomez, who has been working with the organization since 2009, was happy to be in attendance at the event even though she wasn't with her off-again, on-again boyfriend Justin Bieber. “So proud to be a part of @unicefusa," she tweeted after the event.
