Kodi Lee, Winner of America's Got Talent Coming to Palm Beach
Kodi Lee, the winner of Season 14 of America's Got Talent, will be performing live at the event. This 22-year-old pianist and singer is blind and has autism. He is a musical prodigious savant, who is one of only approximately 25 in the world today who possess his extraordinary abilities. Kodi has an audio photographic memory, in which he can recall music he hears after just one listen. New judge Gabrielle Union pressed her first-ever Golden Buzzer after his flawless audition to send him straight to the live shows, in which he received a standing ovation. Nothing has stopped Kodi from living his dreams, including being born with optic nerve hypoplasia, surviving a life-saving surgery at 5 days old, and being diagnosed with autism at an early age. He has inspired the world with his courage, determination, and positive attitude, proving nothing is impossible if you put your mind to it.
The 25th Anniversary Royal Ball will be a celebration of all that has been accomplished and what is to come in the future. Tickets are $500, $1000 and $1500. Junior tickets available at $300. They may be purchased through the foundation's website http://www.UnicornChildrensFoundation.org or by calling 561-620-9377.
With 1 of every 6 children affected by some form of intellectual or developmental disability, most of us have experienced the challenges first-hand or know someone who has.

A big thank you to this year's sponsors: The Gail Wasserman Family Foundation, Valeria Rosenbloom, PrivateFly, Raymond James, Northern Trust, Silvana and Barry Halperin, Rocco and Mary Abessinio, Sunshine Health, NAV-TV, Sean Harney, and Simply the Best Magazine.
