Hemophilia Foundation Presents Aladdin at Dr. Phillips Center
Bleeding Disorders Foundation of Florida fundraiser supports bleeding disorders community
The Bleeding Disorders Foundation of Florida (BDFF) is pleased to present its 18th Annual Evening on Broadway, February 1, 2020, featuring Disney’s Aladdin live on stage at the Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts in downtown Orlando.
Tickets to this special presentation include a pre-reception with heavy hors d’oeuvres, a silent auction and raffle, as well as premiere seating for $150. The reception begins at 6 p.m., followed by the performance.
The 18th Annual Evening on Broadway supports the Florida bleeding disorders community through family support weekends, health educational programs, financial emergency assistance, student scholarships and sending BDFF patients to Camp Spirit, a medically supervised summer camp. Eighty-nine percent of money raised through BDFF fundraisers go toward the bleeding disorders community in Florida.
“The cost of treatment varies for those who have hemophilia and other bleeding disorders, however, costs are typically extraordinary due to the price of medication, as well as the number of times it must be administered,” says Fran Haynes, Executive Director of the BDFF, which has been serving the bleeding disorders community since 1996. “Our patients need us, and we are here to help them.”
Tickets for the evening are available for purchase at hemophiliaflorida.org/fundraising/evening-on-broadway. BDFF is also seeking silent auction and raffle gifts. If your company would like to donate, please contact [email protected], or call 407.629.0000.
