As guests entered the Danbury House of Benfica on the evening of the 31st, a table with signs bearing good wishes and expectations set the spirit of the celebration, bringing in positive energy for 2016.
The décor was a team project carefully crafted by Ana Brás, Graziane Martins Cordeiro, Sônia Souza and Fatinha Bahia.
Kudos to the catering staff led by Portuguese chef Miguel Francisco, whose culinary touch depicts the most popular and flavorsome dishes of Portugal.
Over 150 guests enjoyed live entertainment provided by the Origens Band from New Jersey and the Portuguese singer Monya Borges, who kept the energy of the crowd going all evening and after the countdown to 2016.
The House of Benfica is located at 28 Federal Road in Danbury. For more information, call 203-205-0937.
