Enjoy an evening of celebration at the highly anticipated third annual BrazilFoundation Gala Miami on March 15. Guests to this black-tie event will be treated to cocktails, dinner, music, dancing, and an auction at the Pérez Art Museum Miami (PAMM), Miami’s new state-of-the-art sustainable museum. Featured performances will include the Miami City Ballet School Ensemble and Quabales, a percussion group similar to Broadway’s STOMP.

The BrazilFoundation is a non-profit organization that funds and promotes social projects in Brazil relating to culture, education, health, human rights and participatory development. Its mission is to provide social entrepreneurs with the resources necessary to solve the challenges faced by Brazilian communities. The foundation provides financial support, while empowering communities to become self-sustaining. In 13 years, the BrazilFoundation has raised over $25 million dollars and provided funding to 95 non-profit organizations and 350 social projects.

The gala will celebrate the strides made by this organization by recognizing Brazilian performers who have benefited from the BrazilFoundation and honoring influential social investors. All proceeds from the gala will benefit the foundation and its social programs and community-led initiatives.

Several awards will be given at the event, as well as honoree recognition.  Darleen Callaghan, Director of the Miami City Ballet School, will be awarded the International Philanthropy Award, and Ivete Sangalo, a Brazilian celebrity musician, will celebrate her twenty-year music career with acceptance of the Global Brazilian Award.
