BeLive, one of South Florida’s most exciting and prestigious galas will officially took place on Friday, November 16, 2012 at JW Marriott Marquis Miami. After raising over $3M for the past five years, and changing the lives of so many Colombians in need, BeLive has once again brought together four prominent Colombian non-profit organizations: Give to Colombia, Fórmula Sonrisas, Genesis Foundation and ArtNexus Foundation, to change and impact the lives of the most vulnerable communities in Colombia. 
It was a spectacular star-studded evening filled with Colombian Culture, stunning one of a kind Emerald Jewelry pieces, an exquisite Runway Fashion Show by renowned Designer, Nicolas Felizola, a private concert by no other than internationally acclaimed, Gilberto Santa Rosa and the presentation of the 2012 BeLive Award to one of Colombia’s heroes, Catalina Escobar. This year, as a very special tribute to Colombia’s heritage and riches, BeLive has curated two very special silent auctions: the Project Emerald Initiative and a one-of-a-kind auction featuring exclusive and intrinsic pieces of a unique collection from Artesanias de Colombia.
