The North Alabama Florida College Booster Club hosted the annual Winter Talent Showcase & Dinner at Athens Bible School on Saturday, Jan. 9, 2016. The event was a huge success, raising $2,500 for student scholarships to Florida College!

Despite the stormy weather, approximately 280 alumni and friends of Florida College attended the event, an increase from last year’s attendance. Guests enjoyed a casual, come-and-go meal from Swamp John’s Restaurants and Catering before the talent showcase and live auction.

Florida College’s director of alumni relations, Adam Olson, was impressed with the event’s results and credits the success to the hard-working volunteers who support the North Alabama Florida College Booster Club.

“The group in north Alabama has done an excellent job of bringing Florida College friends and alumni together,” Olson said. “Many thanks to our youngest chapter president, Gavin Richardson, for his enthusiasm and to talent show coordinator, Scott Richardson, for his work as well. We are excited to see a younger generation take on key roles as they give back to the college through their service.”

Florida College would like to thank Gavin Richardson, Scott Richardson, Marty Griggs and all the amazing volunteers who made this event possible.
