Doral Shows Love for Brazil
with Exhibit and Closing Reception
Doral, FL – The Brazilian Amazon rainforest is one of the planet’s largest and most important ecosystems; it serves as home to the people who inhabit the forest and is an invaluable resource for global climate regulation. On September

the Independence of Brazil, featuring delicious Brazilian hors d'oeuvres, music, and more!
