Hearts of Gold Concert 2018
Hearts of Gold has long been a fundraising event unlike any other in our community, but in 2018, we took it up a notch. In celebration of its 25th anniversary, the event truly spread its wings. On Saturday, March 10, 2018 the Orlando Magic opened their private airline hangar to our guests for an unforgettable evening of musical entertainment, delicious food and drinks, and special surprises mere feet from the tarmac. As the sun set on the Magic Carpet Aviation Hangar, our friends in Sister Hazel did what they do best, playing their incredible hits in this intimate, exclusive setting. You helped us raise over $287,000 to help Central Florida’s homeless men, women, and children!
