UCF Celebrates its Golden Anniversary with Gala Event

Mouth-watering cuisine, dancers, a jazz quartet and Knightro dressed in a suit and top hat – all of this and much more was at UCF’s 50th Anniversary gala: A Knight to Remember. The sold-out event took place on Saturday, June 8th at the CFE Arena with more then 1,100 attendees.

Proceeds from ticket sales, silent auction and sponsor donations went to a scholarship fund for first-generation college students attending UCF. In addition, the state’s grant program for first-generation students matched the collected amount for a total of $700,000 raised during the gala. All attendees were given limited edition glass Coca-Cola bottles with the UCF 50th anniversary logo.
