Women’s Safe Passage, the MAG Gala
The Luisa Diaz Foundation, Mi Amor Gala, aka MAG Gala, kicked off its 9th anniversary at the iconic Plaza Hotel with all the spring gala season box checked off. The room was filled with who’s who of philanthropy, all more than happy to support the former Venezuelan beauty queen, foundation founder Luisa Diaz. Luisa set out almost a decade ago, to start a foundation to help combat victimized women in abusive relationships, taking from her own grandmother’s bad experience at the hands of her grandfather. She’s made it her mission to help victimized women regain their foothold in the society through the foundation. Some of these women were present at the gala tonight, where they were honored and championed.
The gala was hosted by none other than New York’s news anchorman Ernie Anastos. Other esteemed guests included Jean Shafiroff, who dazzled in B.Michael couture ball gown. Sasha Prendes serenaded the audience in Jovani. Actress & model Alison McDaniel held her own, also in Jovani couture on the red carpet, while the gracious hostest and foundation founder Luisa Diaz dazzled in Anne Fountaine caped golden gown. And of course, yours truly came forth in Alice and Olivia, acquired few yrs ago but finally got the chance to bring it to life tonight.
I’m exceptionally proud of Luisa for all that she’s done for these amazing women by using her platform & network to promote kindness, love and compassion.
