"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. 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 attendance wil be limited due to COVID 19 so buy your tickets early. In person tickets will only be sold as tables of 2, 4, or 8. Virtual tickets are available in any quantity.
Guests who purchase in person tables are welcome to pivot to the virtual option until 3 weeks before the event which falls on April 24, 2021. Unfortunately due to planning constraints guests who purchase virtual tickets cannot piivot to the in person option.
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! .
In Person option will be at the Holy Trinity Reception Center's Outdoor Pavilion
