The XIII BrazilFoundation Gala New York

The XIII BrazilFoundation Gala New York supporters raised US$500,000 for initiatives and projects that promote a better Rio de Janeiro.

The gala kicked off with a lively performance by upcoming carioca funk phenomenon Dream Team do Passinho, composed of five youths from the favelas of Rio itself. Later in the evening, accompanied by DJ Gaspar Muniz, the group would call all guests on stage to dance and sing alongside them, leaving everyone – whether a carioca or only carioca-at-heart – in the celebratory spirit.

Fernanda Lima and Pedro Andrade, a native of Rio, were the masters of ceremony for the gala. Model Luciana Curtis, a supporter of the Foundation for 13 years, and Amigo Gringo presenter and NY Times columnist Seth Kugel led the auction.

“Eversince I began working with BrazilFoundation, I’ve seen an organization that really does what they say. I’ve already visited several projects and have seen a difference that the Foundation has made in the lives of the people it helps”, said Luciana.

The world’s eyes will be on Rio de Janeiro as it prepares to host the Summer Olympics in 2016, creating unprecedented opportunities to mobilize the international community around projects and institutions in Rio that work to improve the quality of life for thousands. In this spirit, BrazilFoundation officially launched the “ALL FOR RIO” campaign on the night of the gala. #BlaNYCPRGirls adore it all! #phynos
