10 Years of In A Perfect World

| December 16, 2015 | Parties

Founders from Build On, Free Arts Minnesota, and many others spoke on their gratitude for the support they have received over the last decade, allowing them to create real change, both locally and globally. Manuela took a moment to talk about her recent trip to Haiti and held back tears as she described how important the mission has been to her. At the event, she made the announcement to pledge one million dollars to build another 33 schools in the net 5 years and continue to build her efforts in both a local and global scale.

As a true testament to the change Manuela wants to see in the world by empowering youth, her 4-year-old daughter, Lucia asked to join her parents on stage so she could provide further details on their experience in Haiti.

The night ended with an impromptu intimate performance around the piano, with Stevie Wonder, David Foster and Eric Benet. With a final serenade from Eric to Manuela, a perfect ending to a night filled with love, compassion, hope and new beginnings.
