There is nothing more rewarding action than helping someone in need. With countless charitable organizations funding worthy causes, people continue to strive to bring awareness to everything from global issues to illnesses. International model and actress Carissa Rosario aims to bring awareness to pediatric brain cancer and give support to children and families that are affected by the disease, with the launch of the ALY-MO Foundation.

Kicking off the charity in style, ALY-MO Foundation held their launch party at the Flatiron hotspot, Motivo. Filled with live entertainment and cocktails, the night was sure to be a hit with many notable celebrities, including NFL Defensive Player James Anderson, Orange is the New Black star Farrah Krenek and Bravo reality star Dr. Tabasum Mir.

As people walked into the event, cameras were flashing and people were ready for their close-ups as they walked the red carpet. Sponsored by Hot 97, Lasio, the New York Yankees and WBLS, attendees were able to bid on luxury items, baseball games and once-in-a-lifetime experiences.

While people were enjoying cocktails and passed food, they were entertained by Justina Valentine, who is a rising star in the music industry after releasing her single Candy Land this summer.

Rosario named the foundation in honor of the late Alycia “Aly Mo” Allende, who was featured on Fox News from suffering from a rare form pediatric brain cancer, and had an immediate impact on Rosario. She felt compelled to contact the family and made a promise to help educate people while raising money for the cause. The ultimate goal was to help children like Aly, but to also give hope that a cure can be found.

Even though the evening was brought together for a touching and emotional cause, the night was filled with positive vibes and outlook that a cure will be found for pediatric brain cancer.
