About The 2022 Golazo Gala!
Just as a Golazo is a spectacular goal in soccer, our fundraising gala will be a fun and spectacular event. On Friday, December 9th, we will host the gala from 6:30 pm – 9:30 pm at Gold Coast Eagle Distributing in Lakewood Ranch. The event will feature dinner, DJ, cash bar, a photo booth, and a silent auction. Dress to impress (leave the tank tops and flip-flops at home) and come have a wonderful evening to help raise funds for the club. This year’s budget for scholarships is $30,000, so every dollar we can raise specifically helps us in this area!
In 2021 and because of your generosity, we were able to raise $10,000!
Reasons To Attend
Know Before You Go!
For the fundraising aspect to be a success, we want to ask two things of our BRSC families:
1) We would like each player to bring in a worthy auction item, valued at $10 or more. This could include gift cards from local restaurants, bottles of wine, sports memorabilia, etc. Our only ask is that they are quality items, and not used items.
We are also looking for families that might have the ability to donate or solicit donation items of larger valued items. This could include things like VRBO stays, rounds of golf, etc.
All donations should be given to your team manager.
2) Tell everyone you know to get tickets to the Gala! We will have 125 seats and would love to have our community involved and helping to raise funds for the club. Tables will only have 6 seats so that we can spread out a little while we eat and have fun.
We Need Volunteers! If you have folks looking for a way to get their volunteer fee back, we need help in the planning of the gala or help with the auction during the event. So if you or someone you know in the club does has a photo booth business, party supply rental or anything else you think would help the event, please contact BRSC Board Members Matt Baehr (email@example.com) or Jack Bostock (firstname.lastname@example.org)
