JEAN SHAFIROFF & VICTOR DE SOUZA @ SOH GALA
SURGEONS OF HOPE’S GALA RAISES OVER $300,000 TO SUPPORT ITS LIFESAVING PROGRAMS FOR THE CHILDREN OF LATIN AMERICA
Fashion icon Jean Shafiroff along with designer Victor de Souza looked stunning at the Surgeons Of Hope Gala. The event raised over 300 thousand to support lifesaving programs in Latin America.
153 guests attended the gala dinner and charity auction to benefit surgeons of hope (SOH) and to honor the memory of Michel Berty, one of the most influential board members of the Foundation.
The Gala began with a video tribute to Michel Berty, who passed away
in February. The evening also included comments from SoH’s President Dr. Da Cruz; SoH’s Board Member Michel Longchampt; SoH’s Executive Director Charles-Edouard Catherine; graceful transitions by our emcee and CNN Entertainment Reporter Chloe Melas, and a Live auction led by Christina Williams from Sotheby’s.
The beautiful salon of le Bernardin Prive brightened the evening for
our guests, who were welcomed with champagne donated by Mario Rinaldi. A four-course meal by Chef Eric Ripert followed, each course paired with wine donated by Acker Wine to accentuate one’s dining experience. Witty and charming bidding during the live auction rewarded several guests with vacations to Panama and the South of France, including business-class tickets donated by Air France; a lithograph by Joan Miro and exceptional wine packages.
Organizing an event such as this one wouldn’t be possible without the
key contribution of our Gala committee and the great work of our
staff. Thank you all for making this possible!
