Andréa Burns To Host LGBT Gala

By Charlotte Robinson, September 27, 2017
Broadway actress & singer Andréa Burns will host & perform at the annual Task Force Gala-Miami at the Fontainebleau Miami Beach on Saturday, October 7th. Burns recently received an Outer Critics Circle Award nomination for her portrayal of Gloria Fajardo in the Broadway run of “On Your Feet!” based on the lives and music of Gloria & Emilio Estefan. As we reported last month The National Leadership Award will be presented to Grammy Award winner Gloria Estefan at the event for her work to support LGBTQ people & the issues that affect our lives every day. Josue Santiago, Chair of the Gala stated, “This year’s Gala was already set to be one of the most exciting to date with Gloria Estefan, whose talent is matched only by her generosity & compassion, as our national honoree. With Andréa Burns hosting & singing, October 7th is going to be one of the most memorable evenings the South Florida LGBTQ community has ever seen.” Also being honored at the Task Force Gala – Miami are local heroes Alberto Arias & Wood Kinnard, who will be presented the 2017 Eddy McIntyre Community Service Award. Individual tickets to the awards gala are $450 & include an intimate cocktail reception, dinner & the awards ceremony, as well as live music entertainment. Attendees will also have the opportunity to bid on a variety of silent auction items. Proceeds will support the National LGBTQ Task Force’s work to secure full freedom, justice & equality for LGBTQ people & their families. A significant portion of the proceeds also funds multiple organizations serving the LGBTQ community in South Florida.
