"Unleashed. Uncorked. Unframed." 2021 will be hybrid with an outdoor island theme!
Franklin's Friends is proud to present the 8th annual Unleashed. Uncorked. Unframed. on May 15, 2021. It will be a magical evening with exemplary wines, gourmet cuisine, spectacular silent and live auctions, and a private art sale. WESH 2 News anchors Jason Guy and Michelle Imperato will return to host the event. In the context of COVID-19 the event will be hybrid with the option to attend virtually.
The in person option will be held at the beautiful covered outdoor pavilion at the Holy Trinity Reception Center. There will be a fun island theme (we encourage resort casual attire). Social distancing and masking will be strictly enforced. In fact, we have decided to embrace the face mask requirement and make it a"face mask-erade" ball! So start planning your fabulous mask (glamorous or humorous) – because there will be a contest for best mask! Our comprehensive safety plan was developed with guidance from our partners at AdventHealth.
The virtual option will not be just an online silent auction or a boring simulcast. There will be exciting, engaging, interactive content specifically for our virtual guests. A catered meal complete with wine and dessert will be delivered to virtual ticket holders in the afternoon and then they will log on to the livestream in the evening.
Between the two options, we anticipate more than 250 animal lovers will come together to support Franklin’s Friends and local animal welfare. In 2020 the event was fully virtual and raised over $107,000!
In person tickets are sold out - but if you are still interested in attending please email firstname.lastname@example.org. Virtual ticket sales have also closed. We welcome those without tickets to join the virtual event but you will need to supply you own food and beverage. To have access to the virtual event all you need to do is register your phone.
Full instructions on how to log on, including trouble shooting tips and how to access help can be found here. If you need help during the event, reply with the word "help" to any qtego text you received or text the word "help" to 79230. You will get an auto response but a qtego rep will reach out shorty.
During these unprecedented times, Central Florida animal welfare needs our help more than ever. Please plan to join us, whether in person or virtually, to raise money for this important cause! .
