The evening opened with a press conference lead by the Foundation’s Executive Directors. Then, distinguished individuals such as Raul de Molina, Juanes, Rodner Figueroa, Miguel Varoni, Catherine Siachoque, Camilo Villegas, Chip Ganassi, Felix Sabates, Silvia Tcherassi, among others, paraded down the red carpet. Once guests entered, the cocktail party started and the silent auction opened for bids.
