FAU 50th Anniversary : Making Waves Since 1961

50th Anniversary Gala - 50 on the 50

Florida Atlantic University's 50th Anniversary Gala, "50 on the 50," will be a celebration unlike any other. This exciting black-tie event, scheduled for 6:30 p.m. on Saturday, October 29, 2011,will take place at FAU's new on-campus stadium and will span three levels of the Stadium Tower and Plaza. Each area will feature a different theme, so there will be something for everyone to enjoy, including:
  • The Plaza: Guests will be greeted with a signature cocktail as they arrive at the beach resort-themed Plaza, where they can relax and enjoy the beautiful Florida evening along with the sights and sounds of our coastal community.

  • The Cabana: Guests can take the grand staircase or elevators up to the Priority Level, which will be transformed into a high-energy "Copacabana" supper club. The gourmet food, specialty drinks, dancing and entertainment make this level a unique addition to the evening's festivities. The silent auction items will be located on this level.

  • The Premier Level: The sounds of live jazz music, performed by alumna Chloe Dolandis '07 and FAU's Jazz Ensemble, will create a soothing backdrop as guests enter the Premier Level. Here, ice sculptures, seafood and caviar bars, specialty drinks, gourmet food, a dance floor and beautiful décor add to the elegance of the evening.

  • The Suite Level: The Suite Level will offer American Bistro fare, music performed by faculty and students from the Dorothy F. Schmidt College of Arts and Letters School of Music and an opportunity to learn about the construction of the stadium through a display by Balfour Beatty Construction.

Other highlights of the evening include a "half time" show on the field, which is sure to entertain and dazzle; a silent auction featuring rounds of golf, tickets to local attractions, computers, gift cards and more; and opportunities to see our 50th Anniversary Book brought to life through a video presentation.

Proceeds from the "50 on the 50" anniversary gala will benefit the President's Scholarship Challenge.
