BREVARD COUNTY • MELBOURNE, FLORIDA – One of the Space Coast’s most anticipated events, the Scott Center for Autism Treatment’s annual fundraiser, An Evening of Hope VII: Night of Wishes, is set to enchant and entertain from 7-10 p.m. Saturday, April 11.
The seventh annual celebration, featuring the theme “South Beach Chic,” will take place outdoors at Florida Institute of Technology’s Panther Aquatic Center.
This annual gala helps support Florida Tech’s Scott Center and raises critical scholarship and subsidy funds.
The event will feature food from Florida Tech Catering, beer from Florida Beer Company and entertainment by Derek and the Slammers.
Sponsorships are available for the annual fundraising gala, which helps support the center’s scholarship and subsidy efforts.
Ranging from the $500 Faith level to the $15,000 Hope level, which is the event’s title sponsor, each level includes at least two and as many as 16 tickets to attend Evening of Hope.

In addition to the tickets, Hope sponsors will be offered South Beach-style cabanas with their own private cocktail servers.
Another important part of the night will be the WISH sponsorships.
A WISH is a $100 pledge to sponsor one day of early intervention services for a child at the Scott Center.
And once again this year, Kempf’s Jewelers has generously donated one of the world’s best timepieces, a Rolex Oyster Perpetual GMT-MASTER II watch, which will be raffled as a key component of the Scott Center fundraising efforts.
This 40mm, stainless steel timepiece is valued at $8,450.
Raffle tickets are $25 each and available at the Scott Center on the Florida Tech campus in Melbourne, Kempf’s Jewelers, 336 Fifth Ave. in Indialantic or online at Thescottcenter.org/raffle.
The winning ticket will be drawn at 1 p.m. April 18 at Kempf’s.
