Tickets on Sale for FKCC’s “Seaside Soiree” Fundraiser

KEY WEST, FL, January 9, 2018— The Florida Keys Community College Education Foundation invites the community to the Seaside Soiree on Thursday, February 1, at 6 p.m. at the Islander Resort located at 82100 Overseas Highway in Islamorada. The evening begins with an oceanfront cocktail reception and silent auction followed by an exquisite Keys cuisine dinner, collaboratively created by Marker 88 Restaurant and the Islander Resort.  The party continues with dancing and a live auction of a variety of unique and spectacular items.  The sixth annual event raises funds for the students and academic endeavors of the College.

“This is an especially exciting time for FKCC.  A new stand-alone FKCC Upper Keys Center is closer than ever to launch.  We are also building more bachelor’s degrees and pursuing a name change to the ‘College of the Florida Keys,’” said Dr. Frank Wood, FKCC Vice President of Advancement.  “As we rapidly approach the days we’ve all been hoping would arrive, support is increasingly important. The Seaside Soiree is the perfect opportunity to demonstrate your support for the College and have fun while doing it.”

Tickets can be purchased on the College’s website at  Individual tickets are $150.  Sponsored tables of 10 are available for $3,000 or $5,000 and include sponsor recognition for the respective levels.  For more information about the Seaside Soiree or to contribute auction items or financial gifts to the FKCC Foundation, contact Dee Dee Vaughan, FKCC Foundation Coordinator, at 305-809-3153 or
