One pressing issue in Central Florida and across the nation that our Foundation is passionate about is the wellbeing of children. We believe every child deserves a safe and loving home, and Embrace Families is an organization we love partnering with as they work tirelessly to provide just that. From training for foster and adoptive parents, mentorships, providing driving lessons and first cars, finding safe housing options, career guidance, and mental health support – the list of services Embrace Families provides is extensive and so appreciated by our community. But they need continued support both financially and with our time and talents! Annually we give to Embrace Families’ annual fundraiser Dance, Dream and Inspire which is the MOST entertaining event with local community figures paired with professional ballroom dancers who take the stage for an energetic live show. Because of the pandemic, this year’s event was virtual and the Embrace Families crew pivoted masterfully to raise the funds they need while engaging with online dance classes and mini live performances.
