Season 8 American Idol finalist Danny Gokey will be bringing some of his biggest fans on a cruise in support of his charity, Sophia’s Heart. It’s the third annual Cruise For Sophia’s Heart Foundation, and those guests that book their cabins by October 31st will be able to attend a special VIP cocktail reception on embarkation day! The special VIP reception will include a private meet-and-greet with Danny, Kris Allen, and Jamar Rogers, and an intimate performance by all three guests. The Cruise will leave Port Canaveral, Florida on February 24th for a four-day cruise in the Bahamas.
Danny is pretty excited about 2013′s edition of the fundraiser. He shares:
“I’m excited that we get to do this benefit cruise again for the third year. Last year’s cruise raised over $23,000 to help fund our programming, which was a tremendous blessing to the families who have come through Sophia’s Heart this year. Everyone that knows me knows Sophia’s Heart is a huge part of my life and I’m so thankful for all the support over the past few years.”
Since moving to Nashville following American Idol, Danny has been busy helping homeless children and families in a 77,000 square foot facility donated to Sophia’s Heart in late 2010. The proceeds from the cruise will allow Sophia’s Heart to support compassion programs in Nashville including homeless children, families and efforts to assist victims rescued from human trafficking.
