Celebrate Elegant Ocean and Beach Living at the 2017 FAU President’s Gala

FAU First Lady Carolyn Kelly and President John Kelly

Florida Atlantic University invites you to immerse yourself in the elegance of the bygone era of oceanic living while helping deserving students achieve their academic dreams and secure a bright future.

FAU will host its seventh annual FAU President’s Gala on Saturday, April 1 in the Martin F. and Jane Greenberg Foundation Tower of FAU Stadium at its Boca Raton campus.

The President’s Gala will take guests back to the turn of the century and transport them to the gilded age of vintage ships and classic boardwalks. Spread over three levels of the stadium, the gala will dazzle the senses with gourmet dining, a full open bar, live entertainment, auctions, photo-ops and more.

Fitting to its theme, this year’s gala will celebrate advances in ocean science and engineering. For the past five decades, FAU has been a leader in ocean science and engineering education and discovery. Scientists at FAU are prioritizing the health of the Atlantic Ocean, Everglades and river basins.

Attendees may bid on a wide variety of exciting auction prizes including resort favorites, fabulous spas, delicious dining, golf packages, sports memorabilia, jewelry, show tickets and other unique items. Guests also will enjoy entertainment including elegant jazz music and classic beach tunes.

The gala is a wonderful opportunity for faculty and staff, as well as alumni and friends of FAU and its surrounding communities to come together and celebrate the University’s achievements over the past year while raising funds to support student scholarships.

“Carolyn and I are grateful that we had the opportunity to explore and discover as students, thanks to the financial assistance we received,” said FAU President John Kelly. “Those who provide scholarships are changing lives and helping today’s students acquire the knowledge and skills they need to be tomorrow’s leaders.”

More than 800 people attended the 2016 gala, the most in its history. Since the Gala’s inception in 2011, more than $2.6 million has been raised to help current and future Owls fulfill their academic dreams.
