The Maestro Cares Foundation will host its Second Annual “Changing Lives, Building Dreams” Gala, set to take place on Tuesday, February 17, 2015 at Cipriani Wall Street in New York City. The black tie dinner will be hosted by Bravo networks’ “Million Dollar Listing” star Luis Ortiz, and co-founders Marc Anthony and Henry Cárdenas. The Gala event aims to raise funds for Maestro Cares charitable causes worldwide.
The Maestro Cares Foundation was launched in January 2012 by international pop icon Marc Anthony and entrepreneur Henry Cárdenas to assist disadvantaged children throughout Latin America, including the Dominican Republic, by creating healthy and safe environments for them to live, learn and play. Maestro Cares works to achieve this mission by providing housing, classrooms, health clinics, and recreational activities. Their programs create tomorrow’s leaders by instilling the confidence, enthusiasm and discipline necessary for these children to become hard-working, socially conscious adults that make a positive impact in the world through their own unique contributions.
Maestro Cares Foundation held the grand opening of its first project, Orfanato Niños de Cristo in La Romana Dominican Republic on April 2, 2014. The full service campus is now home to over 150 children. On August 14, 2014, the organization celebrated the ground breaking of their second project, an orphanage and school in Barranquilla Colombia, which will open its doors to over 200 children in April, 2015. Other projects are planned in Mexico and Peru, among others.
