    Event Details

    UF’s Friends of Music and Friends of Theatre + Dance are teaming up to host the 7th annual Splendor with the theme Dancing Under the Stars. Proceeds from the event support scholarships as well as other programs that enable students to achieve academic, artistic and professional excellence. Last year, thanks to our sponsors and gala attendees, we raised more than $50,000 to support performing arts programs in the College of the Arts! We hope to exceed this figure this year, and we need your help to do so.

    -Silent auction featuring a variety of items, from artwork to entertainment to travel packages
    -A Keith Watson events production
    -Dinner catered by Blue Water Bay
    -Full-service bar
    -Gala concert featuring one-of-a kind student performances in Constans Theatre and special guest alumni performer Felipe Bombonato
