Birthdays make one think. For some, it’s a time to celebrate another year, for others it’s an opportunity to give thanks for the gift of life, family, friends and loved ones.

Such was the spirit of an intimate cocktail gathering catered by Salon Majestic that benefited Kuychi Runa. As founder Emily Luks, public relations director Pilar Weisselberg, TDP Corp. general manager Silva Vidal and Clemen Blondet (Emily’s sister) celebrated their own anniversary milestones, the quartet came together to chair an event with the idea of women helping women.

More than 70 gals toasted to each other while learning about the association’s programs and services in a private penthouse in San Isidro in Lima, Peru. In lieu of presents, the organizers requested donations for the nonprofit. Upward of $5,000 was raised for Kuychi Runa, an amount that exceeded expectations.

Donations to Kuychi Runa can be made here.
