The Casita Maria Center for Arts and Education’s 2014 Fiesta Gala was held on Monday October 20, 2014, marking the organization’s 80th year in New York City.
Always one of the year’s most glamorous parties, the Fiesta saw over 400 guests come together at The Plaza Hotel to mark the milestone year. The social elite from five continents attended to support the organization’s extraordinarily worthy work with children, teenagers, and their families in the South Bronx.
The event honored Lynn Wyatt, Hilda Ochoa-Brillembourg, and Santiago Calatrava, and Prince Dimitri of Yugoslavia served as the Dinner Chairman. The Fiesta Honorary Chairs were Ana Cristina Alvarado and Maria Eugenia & William Haseltine.
Cocktails were served in the Terrace Room and guests were then ushered upstairs to The Grand Ballroom where dinner was served and guests danced into the early morning hours.
Attendees included: Fabiola Arias, Tony Bechara, Kelly Bensimon, Geoffrey Bradfield, Mr. and Mrs. Daniel Brodsky, The Honorable Sila Calderon, Clara Brillembourg Chopivsky, Clara Tamayo de Brillembourg, Dayssi Olarte de Kanavos, Jean and Martin Shafiroff, and many more.
