Brazil Foundation Hosts Its First Benefit Gala In Miami
It was a milestone night for the Brazil Foundation as it hosted its first benefit gala in Miami Beach. Equipped with an army of heavyweight supporters like supermodels Isabeli Fontana and Adriana Lima, winner of season 5 of Dancing with the Stars Hélio Castroneves, and Brazilian singer Preta Gil, the organization raised $250K to help fund projects in communities throughout Brazil.
Held at the sexy W South Beach, the event attracted 300 supporters to the glamourous dinner entertained by masters of ceremony Isabeli Fontana and Lorenzo Martone.
As usual, the Brazil Foundation brought together a chic crowd of sun-kissed guests. Adriana Lima turned heads as she entered the W’s ballroom with husband Marko Jaric. Lima showed off a barely noticeable baby bump in a sequined mini dress. A couple of tables to the left, Isabeli Fontana, wearing a Julian Rose vintage black dress, towered over guests in Giuseppe Zanotti’s Double Platform No Heel Peep Toe Pumps (see slide show).
To top it off, Brazilian singer Preta Gil got everyone out of their seats and onto the dancing floor. But as Brazilians know it, a party never ends without an after-party. It-Boys Sean and Anthony Souza kept the party going as models got off their high-heel shoes and showed off their Brazilian moves. All for a good cause.
