Message from the President

Dear QuickLook readers,

The end of the year is quickly approaching. It is time to review the moments and people who made 2012 a memorable year.

CCBU is a member based organization and never was its members' support so important to help us succeed face the challenges that this year brought.

Therefore I sincerely thank all our members.

I take this opportunity to thank the members of our Board of Directors, the partners and sponsors who made this year's programs possible.

And I also thank all our QuickLook readers for your interest and for often resending the information about events and programs to your friends and colleagues.

We are ending an unforgettable year for the Centro Cultural Brasil-USA da Flórida (CCBU).

In May 2012 we celebrated our 15th anniversary with a beautiful party. Besides this important milestone, many changes and challenges marked the year.

We moved to a new office in Coral Gables, where we share space with the Italian cultural center, Società Dante Alighieri.

Despite the changes, we have been very active with our social and cultural programs. READ MORE.

Throughout the year, in partnership with the Miami Dade County Public Library System, we presented the richness and diversity of the Brazilian culture in a new monthly program – "Cultural Cup: Brazil, the cultural tour of the 2014 FIFA World Cup".

We coordinated the extraordinary participation of the award winning Brazilian writer Laurentino Gomes at the Miami Book Fair International and we organized a feijoada in honor of the two great Brazilian authors who participated at the MBFI, so our members and friends could have the opportunity to meet and greet them.

The lunch to welcome Mrs. Milma Ramos, the Espresso & Pão de queijo event, the special CCBU session of the film "Captains of the Sands" at the Brazilian Film Festival of Miami were other opportunities for our members and friends to meet and network.

We end the year decided to use in a creative way our new and excellent location in Coral Gables. I have the pleasure of informing you that we are preparing for you and all interested in Brazilian culture a very interesting program full of new initiatives.

CCBU is a member based organization and never was its members' support so important to help us succeed face the challenges that this year brought.
