Enjoy an extraordinary night out, beginning with an exclusive reception including beverages and hors d'oeuvres, a silent auction, and a raffle, followed by a phenomenal concert. Backed by the Orlando Pops Orchestra, the soaring vocals of Fernando Varela (Forte, America's Got Talent) and Branden James (America's Got Talent) will leave guests breathless. They'll be joined in this whirlwind showcase of classic and contemporary hits by pianist superstar William Joseph, powerhouse vocalist Sisaundra Lewis (The Voice), and other special guests.

This event would not be possible without the support of our community. For more information on becoming a sponsor, contact Tracie Morris, Director of Development, at or 407.426.1265.

Fernando Varela, a critically acclaimed tenor, has performed globally in 31 countries alongside performers ranging from Barbra Streisand to Kelly Clarkson and Lionel Richie to Keith Urban. Television viewers will recognize him from appearances as a finalist on America’s Got Talent with his group Forte.

Sisaundra will bring her immense talents to Hearts of Gold as a veteran of international tours with Peabo Bryson and performances with Gloria Estefan and Patti LaBelle. As a former backing vocalist and vocal director for Céline Dion, it’s no surprise that Sisaundra wowed both audiences and celebrity judges when she stepped into the national spotlight as a finalist on The Voice last year.

Special Reception Tickets ($150) include silent auction, raffles, complimentary beverages and hors d’oeuvres, and reserved seating.
