Any country that gave us Ronaldo, Ivo Pitanguy and Samba is top on The Faux Socialite’s© list!

As the largest and most spectacular Brazilian gala in the world, the Brazilian Carnival Ball is an international benefit annually held in Canada,- raising over $53 million dollars over its 42 year history- gala proceeds benefit a selected charity each year. 

Proceeds from the 2009 Brazilian Ball will benefit the SickKids Research Institute, Canada’s first child health research facility.
