Gala FAQs

What does my ticket include?

Each ticket includes a complimentary drink voucher and passed hors d’oeuvres, a 3-course dinner, an evening of dancing, and a chance to win exciting door prizes.

Do I need to print out my ticket?

No. Simply download the Eventbrite app to your smartphone and show your phone to one of our volunteers at the check-in table. Upon checking in, you will be issued a paper ticket to ensure entry into one of our door prizes! (Please note: You must check-in no later than 7:15 pm to be entered into the door pize drawings.)

Can I purchase tickets at the door?

No. Tickets will be sold beginning January 10th through February 4th, or until tickets are sold out. There are 220 total tickets available, and the event has sold out the last three years.

What are my transportation/parking options for getting to and from the event?

Please be advised there is a Tampa Bay Lightning game schedules during our event. Valet parking is available on a first-come, first-serve basis at the Embassy Suites for a discounted rate of $10 per car for those attending the Gala. Paid parking is also available across the street at the City of Tampa’s South Regional Garage.

What should I wear?

We want you to have fun and be comfortable! In previous years, out attendees have worn everything from business casual to evening formal to dressing for whatever our event theme has been. Check out our Facebook album from last year’s Gala if you need any inspiration.

What is the refund policy?

There are no refunds, but tickets are transferrable.
