The Florida Coalition Against Human Trafficking will host its 4th annual fundraising gala, “Taste of Freedom: Through the Looking Glass,” on Saturday, Nov. 2 at the Fort Myers Event Center. Taste of Freedom is a fundraising event designed to raise awareness about human trafficking in Southwest Florida, as well as empower and support victims.
Tickets for the event are $125 each and are now available for purchase online at http://slavefreeflorida.org/taste-of-freedom-gala/. Eight top tables can also be purchased for $900. Funds raised at the event will aid in servicing victims of human trafficking in Southwest Florida and help partners provide housing for minor victims. WINK-TV’s Amanda Hall and Corey Lazar will serve as the gala’s emcees. Now in its fourth year, the charity gala hopes to raise funds to create a long-term residential program, solving part of the trafficking problem – how to best help victims after they’ve been rescued.
The gala is open to the public and will include chef stations, wine, silent and live auctions, and a raffle. Participating restaurants include Bahama Breeze, Bonefish Grill, Cantina Laredo, DaRuMa, Divieto Ristorante, The French Brasserie Rustique, Trattoria Mia and 3 Pepper Burrito Company. Sponsors for the event include Cape Coral Police Department, Cloud9 Float Spa, Davidson Irrigation, Lee County Sheriff’s Office, Platinum PEO Resources, Inc., Scanlon Lexus of Fort Myers, The Eventful Company, and Pushing the Envelope, Inc.
