REO Speedwagon at Hard Rock Live on April 24

Do you like concerts? Do you want to help your community? Then boy, have you lucked out with this event!

Allow us to introduce you to our 16th Annual Hearts of Gold, the signature fundraising event for Coalition for the Homeless.  Each year, supporters of the Coalition’s mission enjoy an elegant evening that includes VIP receptions with cocktails, beverages and appetizers, a silent auction, and top-notch entertainment.  And this year is no exception: we are proud to announce that the 16th Annual Hearts of Gold event will feature REO_logoTMREO Speedwagon, a truly classic American rock band.

Since the 1970’s, fans have been rocking to the power ballads of REO Speedwagon.  Boasting 17 critically acclaimed albums, 13 “Top 40” hits, and selling out concerts 40 years after the original band came together, REO Speedwagon has proved they can withstand the test of time.  Click here to find out more about Kevin Cronin, Bruce Hall, Neal Doughty, Dave Amato and Bryan Hitt.

Hearts of Gold is important to the Central Florida community because the event raises essential funds that allow us to continue making a difference in the lives of those less fortunate in our community. The Coalition serves hundreds of homeless men, women and children each day – last year, we served over 4,600 people, including 548 families, providing them needed services to aid them on to self-sufficiency. Your support of this event will help ensure that we can continue helping men, women and families with children reo-in-concertbreak the cycle of homelessness.
