THE MINDS BEHIND


BEHIND EVERY GREAT PROJECT THERE IS A GROUP OF INSPIRATIONAL PEOPLE

Founders Alina Peralta and María Bravo started MandA Events back in 2005 with a clear goal of helping others.

María was born in Marbella, Spain. She studied business and because of her world, it took her to live all over the world including Asia, Europe, Latin America, and the United States.

Maria then spent time working in the Entertainment Industry producing and acting in Films and Television. After several years of making connections with the world’s most influential people, Maria decided she would use her connections and business sense to bring an entrepreneurial approach to philanthropy, effecting positive changes in the world.

Nicaraguan born, Alina Peralta was raised in Los Angeles by a matriarch of women. She attended California State University Dominguez Hills and graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Communications and a minor in Theatre. Since a young age, Alina has felt a special connection with those in need, especially children. Since having a child of her own this year, she feels a stronger connection with children more than ever.

With a passion to work closely with those less fortunate, Alina feels blessed to be able to combine an event planning career she enjoys and philanthropic work. She has been lucky enough to work with several charities and organizations close to her heart like Make-A-Wish, Eva’s Heroes, PADRES Contra El Cancer, and Rally for Kids with Cancer just to name a few.

Alina and Maria Bravo had been good friends for a number of years prior to starting a company together and knew that with each other’s knowledge of both entertainment and charitable events they would be successful in making a difference for those in need while helping to raise awareness to certain causes. Alina would love to focus more on philanthropic missions that support her Latino community in both health and education.

Alina and Maria are the minds responsible for the launch of the philanthropic platform, The Global Gift Gala which is are world renowned fund raising events currently held in six cities.

The Galas have counted on the support of top celebrities such as Eva Longoria, Ricky Martin, Victoria Beckham, Nicole Scherzinger, David Beckham, 50 Cent, Maxwell, Jane Fonda, Mel B, to name just a few.

The success of the platform has also led the founders to open their own Foundation known as the Global Gift Foundation. The Foundations main mission is to affect positive change on the development, welfare, healthcare and social inclusion of the most vulnerable. The Foundation helps to provide shelter, food, clothing, education, medical attention and other life-changing necessities to vulnerable groups, in particular children and women in need.

"Behind every great project there is a group of inspirational people."
"For money we do nothing, to help the other we will do all."

THE MANDA PHILOSOPHY

FOR MONEY WE DO NOTHING, TO HELP THE OTHER WE WILL DO ALL

The philosophy at MandA Events is a simple one. Be a Philanthropreneur. Implement ones business knowledge to maximize the output for a Foundation or Association that needs help.

MandA focuses on securing two key elements for its partner Foundations and Associations. The first of these elements is securing the highest possible source of funds to donate to these partners through sponsorships and fund collection. Both of these sources of income are made possible thanks to the global success of The Global Gift Gala platform that MandA events launched in 2011.This platform brings together top corporations and influential people that have a willing and wish to help make the world a better place. 

Outside of The Global Gift Platform, MandA Events has successfully raised thousands of dollars through other events such as Rally for Kids, the Global Philanthropic Summit, and many others.

The second element that MandA Events guarantees is global awareness of the work of its partner Associations and Foundations.  Thanks to MandA’s ability to attract top celebrities and media outlets to its events, all involved are given a voice, a voice that in 2013 was heard by over 3 billion people worldwide.
