HOST | Casita Maria Center for Arts & Education
October | 2018
The beautiful and awaited Casita Maria Fiesta hosted by the Casita Maria Center for Arts and Education, took place on October 16, 2018 at the Plaza Hotel in Manhattan. Presided by Jackie Weld Drake, Prince Dimitri of Yugoslavia (authentic pillars of this event) and Carlos Mota, the tireless chairs of the night, the evening shined not only for its extraordinary elegance but for its vibrancy and joy. As usual, its culminating moment was the delivery of its prestigious Gold Medal to three people their exemplary contribution to the arts, education and philanthropy. This year's winners were Dayssi Olarte de Kanavos, Mary Snow and Carlos Souza and the honorary chairs were Elizabeth Peabody, Christine Schwarzman and Lynn Wyatt. The night also welcomed a large group of young enthusiasts in support of Casita Maria's cause, including Nicky Hilton Rothschild, James Rothschild, Valesca Guerrand-Hermes, Francisco Costa, Olivia Palermo and Amy Fine Collins. The Brazilian singer Bebel Gilberto and guitarist Guilherme Monteiro delighted the audience with a musical performance, while Bob Hardwick Sound was, as always, in charge of getting everyone to dance to the contagious Latin rhythm showcased throughout the night. Congratulations to Casita Maria, a cause very close to the heart of azureazure.com.
