The Miami Chapter of Asociación Emergencia Ayacucho (AEA), a non-profit organization benefitting orphan and abandoned children in Ayacucho, Peru, hosted its 2019 fundraiser “A Gala Around the World” at the Coral Gables County Club on September 21 to a resounding success. Emcees Eileen Cardet and Jorge Hernandez, well-known from their roles as morning news
anchors from Univision 23’s Al Amanecer, once again guided guests through an evening full of surprises, entertainment, and reflection for the children of Ayacucho who were in the hearts and
minds of every guest that night. AEA Co-Presidents Marisol Gomez and Blanca R. Quevedo-Denis recognized the Archbishop of Ayacucho who traveled to Miami to bless the event and congratulate AEA Miami for their annual fundraiser. Honorary Gala Chairman Javier Rodriguez, a long supporter of AEA Miami revealed to the AEA board of directors a special proclamation he
attained through the City of Miami in recognition of AEA Miami’s mission for the children in Ayacucho and for their efforts to provide scholarship funds for South Florida youth.
