We have the honor of working for The Heart Gallery of Tampa, whose mission is to raise awareness of Tampa’s waiting foster children and find them forever homes.  We starting working with them in the summer of 2017 and have gotten the opportunity to be a part of some amazing events.

 

Be Mine Gala 2018

When: Thursday, February 8th, 2018
Where: Palma Ceia Country Club, Tampa, FL

Be Mine 2018 was the 5th annual Be Mine Gala, an event dedicated to raising money to benefit local foster children.  This year’s theme was Grease – and we sure did love all of the details that made it feel like we were truly at Rydell High.  “We are completely humbled by the success of Be Mine 2018! We laughed, we cried, we danced all night, and thanks to all of our EXTREMELY generous friends, we raised $180,000 (NET) for local foster children!”

 

The Hart Family

This film showcases the Hart family, a family who adopted Anthony via The Heart Gallery in May of 2017.  The biggest struggle in filming this video was avoiding the urge to sob behind the camera as they told their story! 

“Anthony is the kind of kid that shows you what unconditional joy really looks like. In spite of the odds he faces, he chooses every day to smile relentlessly, and to spread that hope and happiness to anyone lucky enough to be within earshot of his giggle.”

 

Ride It On Home 2017

When: Saturday, November 4th, 2017
Where: SOHO Cycling and Ducky’s, Tampa, FL

“Beast out a high-voltage 90-minute spin at Soho Cycling in South Tampa to benefit a local foster child!”  Each rider at Ride It On Home got to select a foster buddy from The Heart Gallery and raise $1,000 for their buddy.  The instructors at SOHO Cycling sure did know how to get everyone hyped up and motivated to push their limits on the bikes!
