The BrazilFoundation held its 11th Annual Gala at the Museum of Modern Art, one of the New York City’s oldest and grandest landmarks. The red carpet welcomed celebrities and major philanthropists from Brazil and the United States, followed by a sit-down meal, speeches by notable attendees, musical performances, and a silent auction raising over $240,000 alone. The gala was sponsored by Itaú Unibanco and Cidade Jardim Shopping Centre, which have also sponsored the gala in the past, and Swiss watchmaker Audemars Piguet, a first-time sponsor of the event, with the night drawing in a whopping $950,000.
Celebrities and personalities who attended the event included Carlos Alberto Parreira, the technical director of the Brazilian National Soccer Team; Francisco Costa, Women's Creative Director of Calvin Klein Collection; actor Stephen Dorff; actress Kelly Rutherford escorted by former Gossip Girl star and on-screen husband Matthew Settle; socialite and fashionista Nicky Hilton along with childhood friend designer Charlotte Ronson; Supermodels Izabel Goulart, Luciana Curtis, and Fabiana Semprebom dressed in Calvin Klein, Reinaldo Lourenço and Calvin Klein respectively; Valdimir and Julia Restoin Roitfield; Lauren Remington-Platt; and Lorenzo Martone.
