MELBOURNE, Florida -- The Space Coast Gator Club will hold its annual Kickoff Party and Golf Challenge on Saturday, August 23rd at the Duran Golf Club in Melbourne, Florida.
Gainesville Sun senior sports reporter, Pat Dooley, will be the keynote speaker.
“This is our largest fundraising and most popular event of the year. Both the Golf Challenge and Kickoff Party sell out quickly. We count on business and personal sponsorship to ensure the event’s success.” said Randy Gray, Space Coast Gator Club President.
The Golf Challenge is a nine hole, par three event, created so even the novice golfer can compete in it. Starting at 4:00 pm, the Golf Challenge features a closet to the pin and longest putt contests. The event is limited to the first 36 golfers. Single players are welcomed. Hole sponsorships are available for $100.
The Kickoff Party begins at 5:30 pm. This family friendly event will have an outdoor kids fun zone, live alligators and an exotic petting zone, sponsored by Animal Love, Inc. There will also be several Gator vendors on hand selling all types of Florida Gator merchandise to get you ready for the upcoming season. A silent auction and raffle, with all proceeds going to the club’s scholarship fund for local Brevard county students will also highlight the event.
A “Tailgator Buffet” with fresh off-the-grill hamburgers, hotdogs and pulled pork with all the sides will be served at 6:30 pm. There will also be a salad bar included. Wear your finest “Casual Gator” football attire.
Sponsorship opportunities begin at $100. For tickets, or to become a sponsor for the event, visit spacecoastgatorclub.com. You can also email the club at [email protected]
