Better Together, an amazing local organization that strives to keep families together and children out of foster care, presented the second annual “Night of a Million Dreams” gala on March 6. The evening, emceed by NBC-2’s Rachel Pierce, featured a welcome reception, silent auction, dinner, a live auction including “Fund the Dream” and a special guest performance by “America’s Got Talent” finalist Emmane Beasha. All proceeds directly benefit two programs: Better Families, a community-drive alternative to foster care that has served more than 2,000 vulnerable Florida children and kept 98 percent of families together; and Better Work, a church-driven job fair program that has served more than 8,000 job seekers in Southwest Florida.
