Flagler College New Year's Eve Gala
Celebrate New Year’s Eve at the former Hotel Ponce de Leon
Ring in the New Year at the former Hotel Ponce de Leon with an evening of historic elegance- dining and dancing the night away. These storied ballrooms, lobbies and parlors hold the secrets of Presidents, innovators, and socialites. Join us in celebrating the New Year in pure romance of a Southern garden party.
This year to celebrate President Abare’s 45 years of service to Flagler College and his final year as Flagler College President, the New Year’s Eve Gala will benefit the Dr. William T. Abare, Jr., and Susan J. Abare Scholarship Fund. The scholarship will be awarded on the basis of merit to rising juniors or seniors who demonstrate leadership skills in academics, athletics, or student organizations. Primary consideration will be given to a student’s leadership and academic promise; however, consideration may be given to students with demonstrated financial need. 35% of each ticket purchase will be dedicated to this student scholarship and is tax deductible.
The evening will begin at eight o’clock with a cocktail hour in the Rotunda and portraits in the Flagler Room, followed by a plated dinner and dessert with open bar at nine-thirty. Live music will be provided by Bay Kings Band throughout the celebration. The evening will conclude with a ceremonial balloon drop and champagne toast at midnight and dancing until one o’clock.
