Affair: Carolina Herrera Hosts Fundraiser for FundaHigado America Foundation

When: Thursday, June 11, 2015 @ 6PM

Hot Spot: The Glass Houses at Chelsea Art Tower, NYC

Deets: Fashion designer Carolina Herrera will host a fundraiser for the FundaHigado America Foundation, a 501(c)(3) corporation based in the United States. Its goal is to train health care professionals in their home countries in South America, Central America and the Caribbean to provide life-saving liver transplants for children in need. 

FundaHigado (the Spanish term for Liver Foundation) was established 10 years ago to provide liver transplants to needy children in Venezuela. It has enabled dozens of children to undergo successful liver transplants in that country. The program is now being expanded under the auspices of the FundaHigado America Foundation to provide life-saving liver transplants to children in other parts of the region.

Hint For The Average Socialite: Tickets were available for purchase.

Get Involved: Support FundaHigado America and help children that need a transplant. Your support will make educational programs that prepare healthcare staff in underprivileged countries to perform liver transplant in children locally possible. It will also help provide medical treatment for children of scarce resources.
