Grab your dancing shoes and prepare for an unforgettable night! Join us on Friday, May 4th at Armature Works for Art of Giving, the signature fundraising event for United Way Suncoast. Now in its 14th year, it’s attended by more than 500 of the area’s leading corporate and individual philanthropists who come together for an engaging and exciting evening featuring live and silent auctions, delicious food and drinks, live music and an inspiring speaker. All proceeds benefit the United Way Suncoast Youth Education Initiatives which help keep children on the path to graduation and career readiness. Over the past five years, United Way Suncoast has invested more than $30 million in youth education.

This year’s event features John Quiñones, news media icon and host and creator of “What Would You Do?”. He shares a moving presentation focused on his odds-defying journey, while celebrating the life-changing power of education, championing the Latino American Dream, and providing thought-provoking insights into human nature and ethical behavior. After the main event, join us for the “afterparty”, where Blonde Ambition, America’s premier special event dance band, will be leading the fun.

Individual tickets and sponsorship opportunities are still available. For more information, please visit or contact Ilise James at 813.274.0942 or
