The American Nicaraguan Foundation's 13th Annual GalaSaturday, October 26, 7pm - InterContinental Hotel Miami, 100 Chopin Plaza, Downtown Miami

The American Nicaraguan Foundation (ANF) will once again host its annual gala at the InterContinental Hotel in Downtown Miami on Saturday, October 26, 2013. The Emerald Gala – A Treasured Past, A Brilliant Future will benefit the fight against poverty in the neediest sectors of Nicaragua and will be chaired by Gala Founders F. Alfredo Pellas Jr. and Teresa Pellas. This years honorees are F. Alfredo Pellas Chamorro Sr., Carmen Ch. de Pellas and Food For The Poor, INC. The elegant affair is quite the social event and a must-attend for the Latin American and philanthropic community in South Florida. This is the event that feeds into all of ANF’s programs for the year and is vital to the foundation. Through ticket sales and the silent and live auction, The American Nicaraguan Foundation has brought more than 5,400 ocean containers of aid valued at more than $1.5 billion to support the work of over 1,600 local organizations in the last 20 years. Proceeds of the gala every year fund programs for clean water, healthcare, building homes, and education for the children of the greatest poverty stricken areas in Nicaragua. Individual tickets are $400 and include access to the after party. For more info contact Molly Dunn at 202-719-8083 or
