American Society Gala Event

FOR THE BEST MOMENTS IN LIFE

The American Society of Sao Paulo is thrilled to present our annual charity gala in a new and exciting format.  This year our big night of giving will take place at a multitude of intimate parties across Brazil and the USA.  Reconnect with Brazil with a Bossa Nova Supper Club in your home with your friends.  Show them why you loved your time in Brazil!

These Bossa Nova Supper Clubs will transport guests back in time to Rio de Janeiro in the late 1950s—a time when the new beat of Bossa Nova music was beginning to ripple across Ipanema Beach and rise to the top of radio charts across the world. Brazilian music, food, drinks, and even some smart Bossa Nova outfits will set the tone.

When you host a Bossa Nova Supper Club at your home in the USA, we will get you started in setting the mood for this unique night of giving.  You will receive a Brazilian-inspired themed party box with decorations, cachaca, napkins, recipes, menu tips, flowers, menu cards, invitations, place cards, and raffle prizes for ten guests.    There is also a perfectly timed amazing Bossa Nova Livestream event with LIVE music and artists at work. Finally, what would a gala be without an auction?  We have contracted with HandBid to provide a silent auction that guests can access on their iPhones. 

Reconnect with your local friends, Relive your memories of Brazil, and Help us raise money for Casa Limiar, ABBA, Lar Tia Edna, and Grupo Primavera.

Reserve your Bossa Nova Supper Club spot now.

OUR SUPPORTED CHARITIES

Casa Limiar.jpg
Casa Limiar

Casa Limiar serves vulnerable children that are brought into the home through the judicial system who have suffered ill-treatment, abandonment, living in situations of risk, among other reasons and are sheltered until they can be reintegrated with their families, adopted, or age out of the program at the age of 18.

LAr tia Edna.png
Lar Tia Edna

Founded in the 50's by Edna Deakins, an American missionary, Lar Tia Edna provides a warm, loving home to approximately 15 children, most of whom will remain there until they reach adulthood or are legally adopted. Subsidized entirely by charitable donations, LTE is run by Henry (one of Edna's first adoptees) and his wife Nilma, who live on the premises and zealously care for their family. Their primary focus has always been the childrens' education; Henry and Nilma work with inexhaustible enthusiasm, pursuing every opportunity for their advancement.

The children who demonstrate interest are offered music lessons and a few have scholarships at Cultura Inglesa, where they study English.

ABBA.png
ABBA

Mission Abba is a Christian community that rescues youth at risk. Its goal is to reunite street children with their own families, and remedy the situation that led to a breakdown.

Founded in Interlagos in 1993 by an association of churches, ABBA is now led by Thomas and Susanna Smoak and a team of missionaries and volunteers. ABBA runs multiple programs including, 2 community centers, a shelter for children, as well as other social outreach programs aimed to strengthen families and keep children off the streets. It is funded by churches and individual donors, with occasional donations from corporations.

Grupo Primavera

This is a community center that provides crucial educational assistance, career training, and social guidance to 480 at-risk youths in Campinas. 

Established in 1981 by Jade Sieh, Chinese-American Sociologist, the NGO was originally designed to help women in Campinas escape prostitution. Sieh quickly learned that most of the prostitutes were from Jardim Sao Marcos, and after acquainting herself with the community, shifted her focus to prevention. Grupo began offering continuing education and vocational programs to the school age girls in the community.
