Dec. 3, 2012
Ring in the New Year and celebrate 125 years of the Hotel Ponce de Leon with an evening of historic elegance at Flagler College’s New Year’s Eve Gala.
Set in the former Ponce de Leon Hotel’s Dining Hall, the Gala will give revelers the chance to mingle amid the same opulent Tiffany glass windows and magnificent murals that once entertained the likes of former president Teddy Roosevelt, Will Rogers, John D. Rockefeller and Henry Flagler himself.
Hosted by the President’s Society of Flagler College, the Gala begins at 8 p.m. Dec. 31 and concludes at 1 a.m. Patrons can enjoy an evening of elegance complete with cocktails, delectable hors d’oeuvres and dessert bites and an open bar throughout the night culminating in a champagne toast at midnight.
Tickets for the Scholarship Ball are $200 per person and black tie or Flagler era attire is required. Thirty percent of the cost is a tax-deductible donation and benefits the Flagler College Scholarship Fund which helps offset tuition costs for many students with financial need. Seating is limited so call today for an invitation or reservation.
Ponce de Leon Hall is at 74 King St. in St. Augustine, Fla. For more information call (904) 819-6282 or visit flagler.edu/our-community/events/nye_ball/index.html.
