The 4th Annual Gator Gala will be held at The Mezz Downtown on Saturday, August 27, 2011.  Gator Gala is held every summer to raise money for our scholarship initiatives including Local Scholarships, The Florida Opportunity Scholarship and Athletic Scholarships.  We have planned several fun events prior to the Gala to help promote the event and have a little fun.  We hope you will join in.

This year we will honor 3 Gator Greats.  A Gator Great is an University of Florida Alumni, a friend and supporter of the University of Florida and the Central Florida Gator Club and a resident of Central Florida.  They have achieved a level of distinction in their profession and/or community that reflects well on the University of Florida and demonstrate the leadership qualities either in their profession or the community, or has been recognized by their peers for outstanding contributions to their profession or their community.  Please join us to celebrate these outstanding Gators at our 4th Annual Gator Gala. The event has great GATOR company, wonderful food, a Silent Auction containing outstanding items, a guest speaker and more.   We hope to see you this year.
