Ring in the New Year and celebrate 125 years of the Hotel Ponce de Leon with an evening of historic elegance- dining and dancing the night away. Experience the magic of the Gilded Age amid an architectural wonder where presidents stayed and innovators played. Come join our guest list and see where it all began.
Flagler College's New Year’s Eve Gala takes place in the Ponce de Leon Dining Hall, built in 1888 as part of the Gilded Age gem Hotel Ponce de Leon. The opulent setting is ringed with glass windows, golden chandeliers, wall sconces, all designed by Louis Comfort Tiffany. Muralist George W. Maynard adorned the dining hall ceiling and walls with beautiful murals to complement Tiffany's designs.
Guests enter through the magnificent 80-foot-tall Rotunda, which is adorned with gold-leaf murals, hand-carved caryatids and intricate mosaic African tile.
The event raises money for the Flagler College Scholarship Fund, which helps offset tuition costs for many students with financial need.
