FGCU Athletics is now taking reservations for the 2021 Night at the Nest Gala on Friday, December 3 in Alico Arena. Tables are close to selling out, so make your reservation today so you don’t miss out on one of the premier events in Southwest Florida. We are looking forward to another fun and successful evening and hope you consider attending and/or supporting the event. As always, all net proceeds from the dinner, the LIVE auction, and the silent auction directly benefit our wonderful student-athletes.
Night at the Nest returns this year after being moved to a virtual event in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The 2019 event was the most successful in terms of generating $675,000 in net revenue and was headlined by a $1 million gift by Chris and Brianne Sale ’16 to kick off the EAGLE Campaign.
In each of the past five years, Night at the Nest has generated more than half-a-million dollars for FGCU student-athlete scholarships. Due primarily to the generosity of companies and individuals from Southwest Florida, a total of nearly $4.5 million has been raised since the events inception in 2010.
The evening features live and silent auctions on unique memorabilia and experiences among other must-have items. The cocktail reception and dinner provide those in attendance to meet FGCU student-athletes and coaches while enjoying the festive atmosphere.
