Alfalit International Celebrates Their Annual Literacy for All Fundraising Gala

    We had the pleasure of attending the Alfalit International Annual Fundraising Gala with special guest host Raul Gonzales and other celebrity appearances. The Star studded event took place at the Intercontinental Hotel in Downtown Miami.  Alfalit International has been at the forefront of eradicating poverty worldwide by providing people with the one tool that can change their life, Literacy. For over 50 years Alfalit has been working to eradicate illiteracy in over 24 countries including the United States and has since helped over 8 million people learn to read and write in their native language.


“Our Annual Gala is an opportunity for us to showcase the work we’ve done in the past year while raising funds for the years to come,” said Joseph Milton, Volunteer Chairman of the board for Alfalit International.


The gala featured a silent auction with various prizes including two tickets to a live taping of Dancing With The Stars and a dance lesson and lunch with Maks Chmerkovskiy of Dancing With The Stars.
