(NEW YORK)Things are about to get balmy this Friday night, as Carlos Miele will play host during a Brazilian-themed banquet held in his downtown penthouse terrace, partnering with Rio Summer and Vogue for this exotic event. Friends and supporters will toast to the launch of the “Save Me” project, a limited edition shirt designed by artist Michael Roberts. Environmentally-aware shoppers can pick up the shirt at Carlos Miele boutiques beginning in the Spring of next year, and the organic tee will benefit Rainforest Foundation-US. Eco-friendly guests including Selita Ebanks, Astrid Munoz, Genevieve Jones, Daphne Guinness, among others, will dine on traditional Brazilian treats and sway to the vibrant beats provided by DJ Julio Santo Domingo. Miele and friends have already raised over $50,000 for the commendable cause. The organization was created in 1989 by Sting and Trudie Styler in order to protect the environment and ensure the indigenous  people of the world’s rainforests equal rights. Miele and his company will continue to raise awareness as they paint the town green during the traditional Brazilian celebration.
