The compelling story of the founder of a Brazilian aid group convinced New York City apartment maestro, Andrew Heiberger, to help.
Heiberger’s TOWN Residential brokerage was a sponsor of the annual BrazilFoundation Gala at the Museum of Modern Art last Wednesday.
And the day before, Heiberger and TOWN’s Robson Zanetti took part in a breakfast discussion on “Brazil and Global Philanthropy Trends,” with Foundation president Bradford Smith and founder Leona Forman.
“During a recent trip to Brazil, Wendy Maitland, Robson Zanetti and I were fortunate enough to visit BrazilFoundation’s annual meeting,” said Heiberger.
“We got the chance to sit with Leona and were treated to her life story and the reasons behind her establishment of BrazilFoundation. Her passion was contagious and her mission and accomplishments were remarkable.”
Added Zanetti, “As a Brazilian-American, I keep Brazil near to me. I am so proud to be involved with BrazilFoundation and feel very lucky to work for a company that stands with me in support of both local and international philanthropic efforts.”
Guests at the glam MoMA gala included actor Stephen Dorff, socialite Nicky Hilton, designer Charlotte Ronson and Victoria’s Secret model Izabel Goulart.
