April 2018 FORUM

April 2018

April 2018 The American Society of São Paulo the FORUM monthly newsletter Who Benefits from the Annual Gala? by the Gala Committee Every year, the American Society of São Paulo throws an elaborate party, better known as the Annual Gala, to help raise funds for two selected charities in need of financial assistance. While the night is filled with dancing & dining, bubbles & bidding, the ultimate winners of the evening are the children of these benefiting charities. Associação Criança Brasil This incredible NGO is involved in the practice of social assistance activities aimed at children and adolescents in need. Acting in São Paulo, it recognizes the important time of childhood and adolescence in determining and establishing lifelong moral and social values. Associação Criança Brasil’s mission is to contribute and assist low income families within the areas of education, care, food, and nutrition of their youth. The organization hopes to help in the development of fulfilled citizens that possess respect, strong ethics, transparency, solidarity, and feel a part of society. Criança Brasil fights against poverty, inequality, and marginalization. ACB was founded in 1987 by Liana Borges, with help from volunteers; at that time, Criança Brasil served 20 children that did not have an adequate place to stay while their parents worked. Throughout the years, this project of social entrepreneurship has grown into the two certified programs, and serves 841 children at 7 centers. continued on page 12 SAVE THE DATE Apr 11 Happy Hour Apr 14 Children's Field Day Apr 19 Annual General Meeting May 04 Annual Gala May 15 WomenWork May 16 New Member Coffee Are You a VIP? by Kristy Miranda, CAC Committee We would like to take one last opportunity to extend a big thank you to the 2017 Gala VIP Patron ticket holders. What is a VIP Patron ticket holder? The price of a Gala ticket is set to cover the cost of the event, and is not the source of funds for donations to the charities we support. To provide guests the opportunity to donate directly to our selected charitable organizations, VIP Patrons pay an additional R$250 per ticket (R$500 per couple) above ticket price. This additional money goes directly to the two supported charities; this year, Casa Limiar and Associação Criança Brasil (ACB). You can become a VIP Patron ticket holder for the 2018 event! For those who are unable to attend the Gala, this is a wonderful way to participate and support our charities. Contact the office at (11) 5182-2074 or email gala@ amsoc.com.br to become a VIP Patron. § Some of the children from Associação Criança Brasil, benefiting from this year's Annual Gala Cover image: Centro Cultural Banco do Brasil Courtesy of: Pixabay
