| The GOLD-DIGGERS, Inc. was established
October 16, 1976 as a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization for the purpose of writing, producing and performing in a theatrical production each year to support charity.
In the spring of each year the Gold-Diggers, Inc. presented their yearly musical extravaganza at the beautiful Gusman Center for the Performing Arts in Downtown Miami. The show became the largest theatrical production in the Miami area. Due to budgetary considerations, the Gold-Diggers did their last two shows at Pinecrest Gardens before reluctantly "closing the doors" on the Gold-Digger organization on June 14, 2014.
The Gold-Diggers, as well as the Gold-Brickers (male performers) came from a broad spectrum of backgrounds, age groups, vocations and performing experience. Our volunteers spent countless hours rehearsing, building scenery, making costumes and selling tickets. Our show was seen by over five thousand audience members each year.
The Gold-Diggers, Inc. was founded by seven women in the Miami area whose love of theater inspired them to "put on a show" a la the Mickey Rooney/Judy Garland musicals of the past. They recruited members, and in May of 1977 presented their first production. Since that time, the shows extended to four performances and in total The Gold-Diggers raised almost two million dollars for charities. The primary charities were the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, Southern Florida and Puerto Rico Chapter and the Food For Life Network. Other charities have also been the beneficiary of funds (see charities page).
The result was 37 wonderful years of shows, friendships and fun. The eclectic nature of the group was the key, and the love of theater is what kept them coming back for more.
