Charity is the heart of Orlando's community events, where people can come together for a common cause. Regardless of whether you're left, right, dead center, or off the charts, everyone can agree that love is universal. We are all called to help our neighbors and play our part in making the world a better place. These events seek to bring awareness to health issues and human rights violations. They seek to help the innocent and the defenseless, to honor those who have served us, and aid those who are unable to serve themselves. These charitable events provide help where it's needed, and they keep the Orlando community standing strong.
