Leadership Dinner

Make your plans to attend our 10th annual Leadership Dinner on Thursday, Sept. 21, 2017, at 6:30 p.m. at the Hilton Downtown Tampa for an evening of good food and the company of your business peers and friends. Our keynote speaker will be Archie Manning.

When people think of Archie Manning, they think football. Manning attended the University of Mississippi where he was named an All-American Quarterback. As a quarterback for the New Orleans Saints, he set passing records and played in two Pro Bowls before concluding his career in 1985. But Manning’s appeal transcends his athletic achievements. He currently serves in public relations and consulting capacities for several local, regional and national companies. He is an owner of Manning’s, a sports-themed restaurant on Fulton Street in New Orleans, and is active in a wide variety of charitable and civic causes.

Manning and his wife, Olivia, have three sons, Cooper, Peyton and Eli. The Sugar Bowl has created the Manning Award to go to the nation’s best college quarterback in honor of the Mannings’ college football accomplishments.

Since the first event in 2008, the funds raised at the annual Leadership Dinner have benefitted the business programs at Florida College. More than 65 business students have received scholarship money raised at the Leadership Dinner over the past nine years, and we believe this will be our most successful year to date.

Thank you for your support of the Florida College business programs and, most importantly, our business students.
