Kelly Blanco & Johnny Archer hosted The Little Lighthouse Foundation’s Hearts & Stars Gala 2021: Riviera Maya with a special performance by five-time Grammy nominee Flo Rida at Space Park Miami, a magical, open air oasis located in Miami’s Magic City Innovation District.
The Hearts & Stars Gala raised over $850,000 throughout the evening, including $100,000 via the Hearts & Stars Gala Matching Grant, started by the Little Lighthouse Foundation’s Advisory Board members, which matched $50,000 in funds raised at and leading up to the event. Additionally, Bob Zangrillo made an impromptu $100,000 match donation.
