I happened to scroll across an event on Eventbrite that caught my eye, it got my eye because it was a local event in my hometown: Orlando Outreachers. I was automatically drawn to it because it benefits other organizations in the area, as well as spreads the message of love, and giving of one self.
I had the opportunity to speak with one of Orlando Outreachers founding members Mr. Carmelo Acosta last week. What this non profit is doing throughout Central Florida is absolutely amazing! They are changing people’s lives on a daily basis through a number of different ways.
Orlando Outreachers is dedicated to enriching the lives of both the volunteer community and the community of individuals who are struggling with the social issues of our time. Whether they are working with children with special needs, survivors of domestic violence, the homeless, elderly, disabled, or cleaning the environment – they want to bring love, compassion, and support to these causes through volunteer opportunities in which people can come together and have a more personal, rewarding experience lending their time, attention, wisdom, and love to others in need. To see more of what Orlando Outreachers are doing, watch the video below.
Two of the biggest non profits that they help out during the gala are Base Camp (http://www.basecamp.org/) and New Hope for kids (http://newhopeforkids.org/) this is where their 2nd Annual Gala: Bright Lights & Vegas Nights comes into play. They will be donating 10% of the proceeds from the gala two both of these wonderful organizations. I urge you to look both into New hope for Kids, and Base Camp as they are doing great things for kids with Cancer and their families, such as Parent’s Night out Kids In and New Hope’s Annual Bike Ride.
If you have been looking for ways to volunteer or give back to the Orlando community, this event is perfect. Not only do you get to have some fun with your spouse or significant other for the night, but your money goes to a good cause. Your tickets will allow you access to a night of Casino Games by Aces Wild Casino Parties, Live Sets by Various Local Artists, All You Can Eat food, Open Bar with all your favorite options, featuring Boricua Beer, awesome Silent Auction Items, and worthwhile causes to learn about. Right now they have a promotion going on where you can save $25 dollars, that means only $100 per couple for everything I just mentioned! Single tickets are $75
This wonderful event is being held at the Orlando Science Center http://www.osc.org on the 4th Floor which is their Dinosaur exhibit floor, so you get to enjoy being inside while also being outside.

Orlando Outreachers is also looking for sponsors, these events take money, as so do the different activities they do throughout the community. If you are interested in being a sponsor please email firstname.lastname@example.org for sponsorship questions. You can also still donate to the cause even if you can not attend the gala.
