On February 24, 2024, from 5:30pm - 11:30pm, the Foundation for Seminole State College will host the 40th Dream Gala, presented by Addition Financial, at the Orlando Marriott Lake Mary.

This year marks the 40th anniversary of the Dream Gala, a premier fundraising event that brings the Central Florida community together in support of Seminole State College and our students. Thanks to your generous support, thousands of Seminole State students have fulfilled their educational dreams by receiving scholarships funded by event proceeds.

The event will feature a formal dinner, silent auction, activities with over 200 prizes, live auction and a car raffle. Items to be auctioned include luxury vacations, unique experiences, and more. Proceeds from the evening will benefit Seminole State students, programs and areas of greatest need at the College.
