Celebrate the new year like a Rockefeller

The President’s Society of Flagler College announced to Historic City News the details for this year’s Flagler College Scholarship Ball to be held on New Year’s Eve.

Set in a National Historic Landmark – the former Ponce de Leon Hotel’s Dining Hall, ringed by Tiffany glass and towering murals – it’s a taste of the time when the historic building hosted names like Teddy Roosevelt, Will Rogers and John D. Rockefeller.

The evening is about more than just the elegant setting, though. Proceeds benefit the Flagler College Scholarship Fund, which helps offset tuition costs for many students with financial need.

Hosted by the President’s Society of Flagler College, 30 percent of the cost is a tax-deductible donation.

The ball begins on December 31st at 8:00 p.m. and includes dancing, an open bar and hors d’oeuvres, including a bountiful seafood display, dinner and dessert buffets, and an early morning breakfast buffet.

Guests can dance the night away to music provided by The Company. At midnight, everyone is treated to a balloon drop and champagne toast.

Guests are also invited to a silent auction in the Flagler Room, once the Grand Parlor for the Ponce de Leon Hotel. There will be the opportunity to enjoy and bid on artwork, as well as other fine items. Proceeds from this auction will benefit the Enzo Torcoletti Endowed Scholarship.

Cost for the ball is $365 per couple and black tie is required.
