On Saturday, May 6, American Heritage Schools is collaborating with the Lighthouse of Broward to host its third annual Heroes event, a fundraising concert and auction to benefit the blind and visually impaired in Broward County, at American Heritage Schools’ Center for the Arts auditorium. The event will recognize the heroes who live with vision impairments and the impact of the Lighthouse of Broward in their lives.
The Lighthouse of Broward is the only private, non-profit organization in Broward County that provides comprehensive educational, rehabilitation and counseling services to blind and visually impaired children and adults. Through their work, the Lighthouse of Broward enhances the lives of people who are blind and visually impaired in Broward County and empowers them to live independent, healthy, employed and fulfilling lives. All of the funds from the benefit concert and auction will ensure that the Lighthouse of Broward can continue to provide vital services to over 2,700 people throughout Broward County each year.
The event will feature live music from Journey and Bon Jovi Tribute bands, as well as a collaborative performance from the American Heritage Schools’ student orchestra. Attendees can enjoy cocktails and hors d’oeuvres throughout the evening and participate in a live and silent auction benefiting the Lighthouse of Broward. Guests are encouraged to come dressed in their best 80s attire.
The presenting sponsor for this year’s event is American Heritage Schools. Gunther Motors is the gold sponsor, Centennial Bank is the silver sponsor, and the bronze sponsors include Catholic Health Services, BAM Properties, BDO and McCullough & Leboff. Volunteers from American Heritage Schools’ student orchestra, Pre-Med and Pre-Engineering programs will be on-site to help make this event a success.
Tickets are $25 per person, which includes admission, hors d’oeuvres and an open bar.
