UF’s Friends of Music and Friends of Theatre + Dance are teaming up to host Splendor: Let the Good Times Roll a Mardi Gras themed gala. Proceeds from the gala 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.
