The XIV BrazilFoundation Gala New York on Wednesday, September 14th gathered 450 guests at Cipriani 42nd Street and raised US$320,000 for social projects in Brazil. During the event BrazilFoundation paid tribute to Francisco Costa, fashion designer and former Women’s Creative Director of Calvin Klein, for his creative contributions to the fashion world, and for his dedication to BrazilFoundation and other social causes over the past 11 years. 

Journalist Pedro Andrade and Julia Goldani Telles, a young actress in the Showtime series The Affair, were the masters of ceremonies for the evening. Julia, whose mother is Brazilian has strong ties to Brazil and to BrazilFoundation’s work.

Actress Samantha Schmutz opened the evening with a special rendition of Lauryn Hill’s “Everything is Everything”, together with Hill’s DJ, Leon Higgins. Nathy Veras, member of the group Os Arteiros, a sociocultural project in the City of God, Rio de Janeiro, supported by BrazilFoundation, joined Samantha onstage for “Man in the Mirror”. 

Actress Juliana Paes was the auctioneer, with help from Sheron Menezes, NBC weatherman Raphael Miranda, and Brazilian model Laís Ribeiro. The electrifying singer Elba Ramalho closed the evening with some of her greatest hits.
