About the Event

New York City is coming to Gainesville for the 10th Annual A Night in the Big Apple benefiting The Education Foundation of Alachua County. Over $425,000 has been raised through this event over the last nine years thanks to the support of our generous community!

Please join us Friday, February 26, 2021, for an evening centered around supporting education in our community! While our event will be fully virtual this year, you’ll still be able to enjoy all of the aspects you’ve come to know and love about the Big Apple! We will be showcasing the talent of our public school students as well as hearing from students and teachers about the impact of The Education Foundation of Alachua County.

Proceeds from A Night in the Big Apple will be used to support the work of The Education Foundation of Alachua County including programs such as Take Stock in Children, Senior Scholarships and Catalyst for Change Teacher Grants.

Please review the sponsorship opportunities below and consider making a difference in the lives of students and teachers in our community.

Together, we can equip the next generation with the tools for success and secure the future of our community for years to come!
