Nonprofit organization JustWorld International has announced that they will bring their own “Rio Carnaval” to Wellington for the 13th annual JustWorld International Gala set for Friday, Jan. 15 at Belle Herbe Farm. The evening will support more than 6,000 children around the world.

The gala is the organization’s largest fundraising event of the year, supporting JustWorld projects around the world. JustWorld works with partner projects in Cambodia, Colombia, Guatemala and Honduras, focusing on education, nutrition, health and hygiene, and leadership and cultural development programs. The JustWorld Gala also celebrates and applauds the positive change the nonprofit organization and its supporters are making in the lives of children who need it most.

The annual gala, held every January, is a popular event among equestrians and non-equestrians alike, hosting more than 650 guests in a tent beneath the stars. The gala attracts some of the equestrian industry’s top riders, trainers, owners and supporters, as well as important members of the Wellington community.

This year, JustWorld is excited to announce that the evening will bring the spirit of the “Rio Carnaval” to Wellington. With such an electrifying theme, the 13th annual gala will offer a night full of dancing and entertainment.

Guests will spend a glamorous evening at Belle Herbe Farm in Grand Prix Village, taking part in a series of fundraising events that will directly benefit the nonprofit organization, including silent and live auctions. In addition to tasting stations featuring the best of Brazilian cuisine, the fabulous food and drink will be sure to bring Rio to life.
