Take out your social calendar and pin The DREAM Project’s 8th Annual Benefit: Sueños 2020 as this highly anticipated event comes back to New York City. Celebrities, educators and New York’s most prominent philanthropists gather every year to help the organization with funds and resources to expand their educational programs, impact more disadvantaged communities and close the cycle of poverty in the Dominican Republic.
Sueños will take place on Thursday, February 27, 2019 from 6:30 pm to 10:00 pm at The Mezzanine, located at 55 Broadway in Manhattan. This year’s event will have a unique theme as DREAM will celebrate Dominican Independence and the Independent Dominican Woman.
Sueños red carpet kicks off the night at 6:30 pm with celebrity guest appearances and an exclusive DREAM Ambassador Cocktail and VIP networking hour. This exclusive networking hour will be accompanied by Food Network winning Chef Kelvin and renowned actor Taye Diggs from Rent, who will be joined by additional celebrities, among them a group of independent Dominican women which will be announced in the upcoming days. A Brugal 1888 pairing will add the final touches to this stellar night for all VIP guests to enjoy.
The main event will begin at 7:30 pm, headlined by DREAM’s award ceremony and closed by no other than the sounds and rhythm of The DREAM Bachata Academy. Good company, great pairing of cocktails and food, and live music will come together once again for this magic night of giving back.

Tony Peralta, contemporary artist and community leader, embraces DREAM’s roots In the Heights and the need for innovative ideas in education. Michel Zaleski, DREAM Chair and Founder, understands the bridge between passion for the island and philanthropic support.
