The American Nicaraguan Foundation (ANF) will once again host its annual Gala at the InterContinental Hotel in Downtown Miami on Saturday, October 25, 2014, at 7 p.m. The 2014 “Building a Better Future” Gala – Under the Nicaraguan Sky will benefit the fight against poverty in the neediest sectors of Nicaragua and will be co-chaired by Theresa C. Pellas and Gabriela Terán. Last year the Gala raised over $1.2 million for its mission to help the neediest sectors of Nicaragua through programs of self-sustainability and personal empowerment.
Over 500 guests are expected to attend this year’s event, as we transport our guests to a beautiful night Under the Nicaraguan Sky. The elegant affair is a very social event and a must-attend for the Latin American and philanthropic communities in South Florida.
This event is the main fundraiser for all of ANF’s programs and is vital to the Foundation’s success each year. Through ticket sales, raffle, Fund a Need and the silent auction, The American Nicaraguan Foundation has brought more than 5,700 ocean containers of aid, valued at more than $1.589 billion, to support the work of over 1,200 local organizations in the last 22 years. Proceeds of the gala every year fund programs for clean water, healthcare, building homes, and providing education for the children of the greatest poverty stricken areas in Nicaragua. ANF maintains its operating costs at less than 2%, ensuring that 98 cents of every dollar goes to serving those in need.
Tickets are $400 per person with sponsorship opportunities still available. For more information and tickets, please contact Aldo Cardona at 305-374-3391, Ext. 108, or by email at ACardona@ANFNicaragua.org
