The 26th of October of 2011 The American Friends of the Bambi Homes Colombia had the pleasure to host Be Part, the second art auction organized by AFBH.
It was a night of enormous success: We had the unconditional support of the permanent mission of Colombia to the UN and the Ambassador Nestor Osorio, as well as the support of the Colombian Consulate in NYC and the Consul Elsa Gladys Cifuentes. Additionally, there was a very dedicated group of people on the Beneficiary Committee: Gustavo Aristizábal, Elena Echavarría, Katie Gass, Beatriz de la Mora, Nohra de Pastrana, Antonio Puerto and León Tovar.
We had a massive response from Colombian artists and art donors who generously donated 30 art pieces.
We received the support of old and new benefactors who helped us in many different ways. We want to thank The Gabarron Foundation, Gas Natural Fenosa, So…? Fragance with attitude, Fitch Ratings, Bancolombia Group, Aviomar, Thomas & Elizabeth Laffont, Tampa Cargo, L.A. CANO Gallery, Sylvia Tcherassi and Villegas Editores.
Be Part is evidence of what generosity and teamwork can accomplish. We had the company of 20 amazing volunteers and the attendance of 140 giving guests who made of this night an amazin experience.
