Sounds of Summer going virtual

Sounds of Summer – the annual gala supporting the Davie Community Foundation – will be virtual this year.

Sounds of Summer – Safe from Home will be celebrated online.

“We won’t be gathering at WinMock this June, but you can still enjoy bidding for items from our silent auction, buying a raffle ticket or two, and voting in the entertainment contest, all done online between May 15 and June 5,” said Jane Simpson, foundation president.

Stay tuned throughout May for updates and join the fun on June 6 at 7 p.m. on Zoom for a fun summer celebration as winners are revealed.

This year you have the chance to be the featured act at Sounds of Summer – Safe from Home.

“We know there are many talented singers, dancers, comedians, and more in our community. We want you to show your Sound of Summer as you compete for the chance to be the featured act at Sounds of Summer – Safe from Home,” she said.

The grand prize is $1,000 for a favorite Davie charity and $1,000 cash for you with the opportunity for a live performance at Sounds of Summer in Hawaii on Saturday, June 5, 2021.

Submit a clip (no more than 3 minutes) and show your talent. The community will vote for their favorite acts with an elimination to determine the top 10 before the top three winners are announced during the virtual event on June 6 at 7 p.m. Each vote is $5. Check the foundation website, daviefoundation.org, for details.

Use the money you would have spent to purchase an event ticket to purchase a raffle ticket to support Davie Community Foundation and potentially win a cash prize. Only 100 tickets will be sold for $100 each. Two prizes will be awarded: $2,000 and $1,000. Winners will be drawn on June 6 at 7 p.m. during the Sounds of Summer – Safe from Home. Raffle tickets are on sale from May 15-June 6 at 6 p.m.

Items included in the silent auction can be viewed through OneCause at http:/bidpal.net/dcf2020. The silent auction is open May 15- June 6 at 7:30 p.m.

“Although we can’t be together in one place this year, we can all gather through Zoom to see the faces you only see once a year,” Simpson said. “Be sure to pour your favorite beverage and pull up a comfortable seat to join us through your iPad, laptop or computer as we celebrate Sounds of Summer – Safe from Home on June 6,” Simpson said.
