Brazil Foundation Gala #absolutelyTOP

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.
