On Saturday, January 20, the Florida Youth Pride Coalition (FYPC) will host the 2018 Icon Awards. This event will be held at the Signature Grand, 6900 W. State Road 84 in Davie, Florida 33317, from 7PM to 11PM. This is FYPC’s signature event, held annually to recognize LGBTQ Youth, Allies and other members of the community for their outstanding accomplishments and efforts. It also serves as their largest annual fundraiser to benefit LGBTQ youth members and their Allies by allocating proceeds to educational funding and other youth enrichment programs, including opportunities to receive scholarships. Each youth member will be paired up with mentors and honorees whose work aligns with their interests, and will be given the opportunity to network with the mentor and/or honoree and submit an essay of what they learned and how they will apply these lessons during their work in the Community.

Special guest performances include: Evelyn Monroe and Dancers; Gia Gizelle Stone; Justice Divine; Vermex Cid Bilboat; Genesis; and others to be announced. Ticket purchases include a full course meal with wine and valet parking.

It’s not too late to get involved in the event. They are seeking sponsors to pay for up to 50 youth to attend the event, as well as corporate sponsorships. Tickets and sponsorships are available for purchase online at http://www.floridayouthpride.com/gala.html or by calling (954) 842-1008.
