BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – Wear your finest “Casual Gator” football attire as the Space Coast Gator Club will hold its annual Kickoff Party and Golf Challenge on Saturday, Aug. 23 at the Duran Golf Club in Melbourne.
Pat Dooley, senior sports reporter of the Gainesville Sun will be the keynote speaker.
The Golf Challenge is a nine hole, par three event, created so even the novice golfer can compete. The event is limited to the first 36 golfers and single players are welcome.
Starting at 4 p.m., the Golf Challenge features a closet to the pin and longest putt contests. Hole sponsorships are available for $100.
The Kickoff Party, which begins at 5:30 p.m., is a family friendly event that will have an outdoor kids fun zone, live alligators and an exotic petting zone, sponsored by Animal Love, Inc.
“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.
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 p.m. There will also be a salad bar included.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org
