Money raised from the event will go to Breast Cancer Care WA, which provides personalised emotional, practical and financial support and care for people affected by breast cancer.

The event will feature Sand Dance Company capoeiristas and samba dancers, Latino DJ Miguel Don Migi Gonzalez, a three-course meal and drinks and the chance to win prizes.

MACI Boutique Events founders Daniela Mastrocola and Belinda Cipriano, who also works for Community Newspaper Group, have run the charity support company for a few years and are fuelled by their motto to make a difference one celebration at a time.

Ms Mastrocola said the event promised to be a successful night supporting a worthwhile charity.

‘The night will be filled with Brazilian food, music and entertainment with plenty of chances to win great prizes,’ she said.

‘We are grateful to have a team of supporters, including Nine News presenter Ebbeny Faranda who will be master of ceremonies on the night, but are always after more donations and sponsorship to help raise money for a fantastic cause.’

Tickets are $150 and available at moshtix.com.au.
