The 2016 black-tie gala took place on Saturday, Feb. 13, 2016, at the Orlando Marriott-Lake Mary. The 2016 Dream Gala, presented by CFE Federal Credit Union, celebrated 20 years of Dr. E. Ann McGee's leadership as president of Seminole State College. The 1920s-themed evening featured a formal dinner, a band to provide the entertainment, live and silent auctions, and a car raffle. Items auctioned off will included luxury vacations, unique experiences, tickets to major sporting events and more. The 2016 Dream Gala raised a record-breaking $400,000 to benefit Seminole State students, programs and areas of greatest need at the College.
A generous partner of the College, Central Florida Auto Dealers Association (CFADA), has donated a 2016 Chevrolet Camaro V6 for the car raffle. A total of 350 tickets were sold, and the winner was announced at the 2016 Dream Gala.
