  • Description

    Like many of our fundraising peers across the country and world, we are monitoring the COVID-19 outbreak and its effect on institutional events. 

    After much consideration, the College of the Arts administration has decided to cancel Splendor 2020. 

    The World Health Organization and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention encourage individuals to maintain at least 3 feet distance between yourself and anyone who is coughing or sneezing. Given the physical venue limitations of Splendor, maintaining appropriate social distancing is not always possible. 

    We understand this may be disappointing and may pose some inconvenience to you, but we hope you understand our concern for the health and safety of you, our supporters, students, faculty, and staff.  

    We thank you for your generosity and your support of our students and faculty at the School of Music and School of Theatre + Dance. 

    EVENT DETAILS

    Travel back to the Jazz Age and join us for a Roaring Twenties Splendor, benefiting the students and programs at the UF School of Music and School of Theatre + Dance. Prohibition has been lifted for the evening, so enjoy bootleg beverages and bathtub gin at two bars. Dinner will be the bee’s knees, and the entertainment will hit on all sixes. Lay down some sawbucks, fins, and Benjamins at the silent auction to score some big-time gifts for your gal or beau. Enjoy jazz music and do the lindy-hop at the after party speakeasy. Password: “Art Sent Me.”
