Help us Make Hope HappenTM by contributing to our fundraising efforts.

No act of generosity is too small to make a difference.

You're invited to a Night in Brazil! Where you will find the music, dance, food and drink that is Brazilian.

Starting at 5:30 PM
SIP on a caipirinha (Brazil's national cocktail), MOVE to the carnival percussion rhythms, BID on awesome auction items via mobile bidding and then learn to DANCE the samba.

The evening continues as the samba dancers move you into the ballroom where during our program you will FEAST on a Brazilian influenced menu, be INSPIRED by our honorees and Student Impact Highlight. ENJOY the beats of BOSSA NOVA and ACTIVATE your senses with a Capoeira performance, and then RAISE your paddle for a fabulous live auction item or the special appeal.
