Join GHNI at “Orlando Magic Brings Hope” Event

If you’re a Magic (or Bulls) fan, “Orlando Magic Brings Hope” is just the event for you.  I volunteer at this great organization called Global Hope Network International (GHNI) that helps rural villages in Africa, Middle East, and Asia break the perpetual cycle of poverty. How they do this is through Transformational Community Development© which focuses on five key areas to help a village transform itself out of severe poverty: clean water, agriculture, wellness, education, and income generation.

On March 26th, GHNI will be hosting an event at the Orlando Magic vs. Chicago Bulls game at the Amway Arena in Downtown Orlando. By purchasing your ticket through GHNI, you will get early admission, a family-friendly pre-game dinner with guest, Bo Outlaw, meet former Magic players along with an incredible silent auction. Hope we see you there!

Photos of Glass Animals at the Beacham

Earlier this month, I went to see the Glass Animals perform at The Beacham, a music venue and club in downtown Orlando. If you’ve never heard of the Glass Animals, seriously stop reading this and go check them out on YouTube. I’ll be here waiting….

Welcome back! They’re pretty awesome, right?

Seeing them perform live was really fun, and the experience was made even better because I got to check out The Beacham which I’ve been wanting to do since I moved in Orlando in 2012. I’ve only been inside once or twice when it’s a club so I felt like I haven’t really seen what it’s like as a music venue.

I was a little hesitant about how The Beacham would be after reading mixed reviews on Yelp, Facebook, and Google, but I ended up liking it and would go back again for future concerts. It was the perfect size for this type of concert and the light show was just right for the music. Besides a couple squeaks on the speakers, the acoustics were otherwise pretty good IMHO.

Here are some of my favorite photos from the Glass Animals concert on Dec. 7, 2015 that I took on my Galaxy s6. My favorite thing about the show (besides the band) were the pretty lights 🙂
