Join us for a seat at Raise the Table and a special evening featuring exciting silent auction items, AmFund Trips of a Lifetime, a live auction, gourmet cuisine, dancing and performances by popular cover band Derek and The Slammers and Orlando’s Poet Laureate Shawn Welcome.
Raise the Table will raise critical funds for individuals and families who are transitioning out of homelessness, fleeing domestic violence, starting over after a natural disaster or experiencing a medical or financial hardship.
Every person deserves a bed to sleep in, a table to eat at and a couch to relax on after a hard day’s work.
Tickets: $150 per person
