BeLive is thrilled to announce that Sofia Vergara will co-chair the 5th Anniversary along with this year’s Chair, style and fashion icon Lauren Santo Domingo. Sofia has been nominated for two Emmy and Golden Globe Awards for her role in the ABC Series “Modern Family,” broadcast in 81 countries around the world.

In addition to a long list of celebrities, the evening will be filled with fashion surprises. Lauren Santo Domingo, Contributing Editor for Vogue and Co-Founder and Creative Director for Moda Operandi, will be spearheading both the Mochila Wayuu Project and the sensational fashion show, produced by The Webster.
