For those who can’t wait to devour the original & artisanal flavors, the Eating Contest is a great way to kickstart the day – and win a free gallon of your favorite gelato! Test your balance in Stack It High by PreGel, the contest to see who can stack the most scoops of gelato. Find out whether you have what it takes to serve gelato with the pros in the Speed Cup Race by ISA. Bring the whole family – there’s always room for more on the Kids Jury, where the youngest gelato lovers score each gelato and choose a favorite.

    This is no ordinary Gelato Festival – each contestant has already won the gold medal at a Gelato Festival in America. Only the best Gelato Chefs in America have been invited to present an original flavor in the American Final. The stakes are high and the gelato will decide it all, so every flavor will be AMAZING!

    One flavor of gelato and the artisan who prepares it will be selected by a popular vote among guests and the professional opinion of the judging panel as the Miami 2019 American Final Winner! A gold cup made by Paolo Penko the Florentine Goldsmith will signify this lucky chef’s great achievement – and serve as an invitation to compete against the best of the best in the World Wide Final in Italy 2021, the Gelato Festival World Masters.

    The Fort Lauderdale Gay Men’s Chorus (FTLGMC) is honoring the 100 years of American Composer Leonard Bernstein and the legacy of Matthew Shepard – a college student who more than two decades ago was the victim of a brutal gay-hate murder – during “A Celebration of Life, Love and Music” performance on Sunday, March 17 at 5 p.m. from the All Saints Episcopal Church in Fort Lauderdale. A portion of show proceeds will benefit the Matthew Shepard Foundation.

    While a significant portion of the evening showcases the prolific works of Bernstein, the Chorus is dedicating “Changing Hearts,” a special, six-piece collection, to Shepard and others who have been the victims of gay-hate crimes. The set features songs from some of Bernstein’s renowned Broadway musicals such as West Side Story, On the Town and Candidae. Scenes from The Laramie Project, a play that debuted in 2000 by Moisés Kaufman and members of the Tectonic Theater Project about the reaction of Shepard’s death, are being interspersed with the evening’s musical selections: Tonight; Something’s Coming; One Hand, One Heart; I Can Cook Too and Make Our Garden Grow.

    Funding for the Fort Lauderdale Gay Men’s Chorus is provided in part by the Broward County Board of County Commissioners as recommended by the Broward Cultural Council. General admission tickets are $25 and VIP tickets with priority seating are priced at $40, plus a small service fee.

    Tickets are available for purchase online at TheFTLGMC.org or by calling (954) 832-0060.

    About Michelle DiMarco
    Michelle DiMarco had no idea she wanted to be an entrepreneur. 
    After college, DiMarco struggled finding a career that she was madly
    passionate about. She sought refuge in keeping up on the latest trends
    in fashion magazines and designer blogs, while styling her friends for fun.
    Her muses ranged from Bridget Bardot to Diane Kruger and Carine
    Roitfeld. When a retail space opened up near her home in Florida, her mom encouraged her to take a leap of (fashionable) faith. She listened closely
    to her heart which encouraged her to create the Lilac And Lilies Boutique. 
     
    Michelle DiMarco, born in New Port Richey, Florida and raised by a single
    mother from Cuba, learned from an early age the importance of her roots,
    heritage and culture, yet to cultivate an independent spirit to evolve
    and successfully follow her dreams. DiMarco graduated from Florida
    Atlantic University in Boca Raton with a degree in Intercultural
    Communications. During college, she pursued her passion for travel
    while spending three months in Ghana, Africa for an exclusive study
    abroad program. Thereafter, she continued to be inspired by exploring
    new places which led her to New York City to attend The Fashion Institute
    of Technology where she studied Creative Enterprise Ownership. Over
    the last ten years, DiMarco has grown the brand into a shopping
    destination for high quality, on-trend and affordable finds for Florida’s
    fashionistas and beyond with a corresponding e-shop.
     
    Throughout her career as an entrepreneur, DiMarco has been able to
    give back in many ways as a devoted volunteer and advocate for
    philanthropy. She has been nominated as one of the 100 Outstanding
    Women of Broward County for three years in a row, benefitting The
    Boys and Girls Club. She is active on the board of The Humane Society
    of Broward County, and regularly volunteers for Kids in Distress. DiMarco
    is also a recipient of The Glammy Award for her community activism
    benefitting breast cancer research. DiMarco has been featured in WWD,
    New York Post, Forbes, CBS, NBC, Sun Sentinel, Boca Life, the Miami
    Herald and more.
     
    DiMarco currently lives in Fort Lauderdale with her King Charles
    Cavalier puppy, Lily. She enjoys living a healthy lifestyle of mind, body
    and spirit – which makes DiMarco the successful, well- rounded
    businesswoman that she is today.
