Jean Shafiroff With Victor dE Souza

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!

About Surgeons of Hope

Although complex pediatric heart surgeries and treatments are available, they are often out-of reach for the world’s more under-resourced regions. Surgeons of Hope strives to build a more equitable world by ensuring no child is negatively affected by a broken heart. Once surgeries are conducted, Surgeons of Hope also provides facilities, technology and triaging to ensure local medical professionals can continue this service in their communities. 

Each year, Surgeons of Hope sends medical teams to Nicaragua, Costa Rica and Peru to help children and provide them with a better future.

Honoring philanthropist Jean Shafiroff and Kevin Hughes, clinical cardiovascular specialist for Edwards Lifesciences, the event afforded the 130 guests in attendance an exclusive opportunity to sample a delightful six-course spring menu created specifically for the occasion by Master Chef Laurent Tourondel.
