January 14, 2010 – Wellington, Florida – Only one week remains until “A Night in Paris,” the eighth annual JustWorld International fundraiser, is held Friday, January 21, 2011, in Wellington, Florida.  JustWorld International is a not-for-profit, humanitarian organization working as a catalyst for positive change in the developing world through education and nutrition programs for impoverished children.

Held at Maria Newman’s stunning Belle Herbe Farm in Grand Prix Village, “A Night in Paris” will take place in the presence of the Consul General of France in Miami and Mrs. Gael de Maisonneuve.  Event sponsor Whole Foods is donating all the sumptuous Parisian-inspired food.  The Parisian theme will be reflected through food, drinks, and entertainment as the who’s who of the Wellington equestrian and social scene celebrate the past success stories of JustWorld International and fundraise for future accomplishments.

Tables are still available though selling fast.  Thanks to those who have confirmed their sponsorship of this year’s fundraising gala.
