(Palm Beach, Fl---) Internationally renowned Brazilian artist, Romero Britto, will unveil his portrait of the author of The Racing Heart and philanthropist, Ava Roosevelt, during a private reception in Palm Beach, December 15th, 2012.  The reception, hosted by Ava Roosevelt, will also serve as a ‘friend-raiser’ for the Education Technology & Performance Foundation (www.ETPFoundation.org), a newly founded charitable trust on which Ava serves as a member of the Advisory Board.  Founded in 2012, ETP Foundation advocates the use of effective technology in education, raising funds and increasing philanthropic support for education, technology and performance in schools.

Guest of honor, Romero Britto, whose vibrant work the New York Times describes “exudes warmth, optimism and love,” will personally unveil the much anticipated portrait.  Among Britto’s achievements are exhibits in over 100 countries, including the Carrousel du Louvre and the largest art installation in Hyde Park.  By also collaborating with numerous philanthropies and creating children’s books, he is an artist as an agent for positive change.  “A friendship and mutual admiration is the inspiration behind the portrait,” says Roosevelt.

“I am so grateful to my dear friend Romero for bestowing on me his great talent.  As I am not the only one excited to see his masterpiece, it seemed an opportune moment to use the spotlight to shed light on a cause dear to me,” says Roosevelt.

Among the 100 attendees expected to join Britto and Roosevelt during this celebration are the Board of Advisors of the ETP Foundation:   Founder and Chairman Bridget R. Yeakle, author Dame Beatrice Fairbanks
