End of Season Volunteer & Customer Appreciation Cocktail Photos

Vianna Brasil Jewelers hosted an End of Season Volunteer & Customer Appreciation Cocktail to benefit Unicorn Children’s Foundation on Thursday, April 16, 2015. While Vianna B.R.A.S.I.L is a fourth generation business specializing in fine jewelry featuring genuine gemstones, they recently opened their first showroom at Royal Palm Place in Boca Raton, Florida.

Luciana Vianna, owner of Vianna B.R.A.S.I.L., shares “We wanted to open a showroom that blends an assortment of exquisite jewelry and art in seamless harmony. We are pleased to be able to give back to the community we have grown to love.”

Attendees were treated to tasty bites along with superb wines and champagne, while enjoying the hospitality and colors of Brazil. Unicorn Children’s Foundation and Vianna B.R.A.S.I.L. created this event to thank their volunteers and customers for all of their hard work and dedication throughout the year. The store generously donated a portion of proceeds from all sales that evening to Unicorn Children’s Foundation.

“We genuinely appreciate the generosity of our volunteers, donors, and business partners. Through their support, we will be able to create a model community where individuals with special needs and disability are appropriately assisted and supported in least restrictive ways to maximize their full potential” stated Sharon Alexander, Executive Director of Unicorn Children’s Foundation.
