Greetings, Gators!

Each month our Social Committee plans unique and exciting events right in our own backyard.  Here are some of the Social events coming up.



Betty Williams will open her lovely home once again to host an Easter Party on Sunday, March 20th.  Games, swimming, shooting pool ... something for everyone.  Just bring a dish to share and your favorite libation.  We hope you will join us!


Join your Gator friends for the Juno Park Chili Cookoff Picnic!!  The date is Saturday, April 23rd, from Noon to 5 p.m.  For just $10, you will sample  chili prepared by some of the Gators best cooks, and then you be the judge of your favorite chili.  Hot dogs, potato salad, and bottled water included.  Bring your chairs, coolers, and favorite beverages.  Food will be served from 1 to 3:30 p.m.  Vote for your choice of best chili by 4 p.m.; winners will be announced at 4:30 p.m. 

The Chili Cook Off is a combined venture of the V.P. of Special Activities and V.P. of Socials.  Join us for a "hot, hot, hot," event!

Gator Happy Hours


Happy Hours are the most popular way to meet and connect with your fellow Gators.  Wear your name badge or beads, and you will be instantly part of "the in crowd."  Our new Happy Hours Coordinator is Bonnie Boaz.  Here is what Bonnie has planned for us in March:

March 4 - Carmine's Ocean Grill - Palm Beach Gardens

March 11 - Beach House Island Bistro and Tiki Bar - Jupiter

March 18 - Two Drunken Goats - Singer Island

March 25 - Carrabba's - North Palm Beach




Thirty-four  lucky Gators and Friends had tickets to the Tony-Award-Winning Production of "Motown, The Musical."  The performance, part of the Kravis Broadway Series, was a Matinee Performance, Saturday, Feb. 13th, from 2 to 5 p.m.  We had premium seating in Rows B and C of the Loge Section of the theater.  Comments from our groups:  "Outstanding performance!"  "Great set design and staging!"  "Loved hearing all the old favorites of the Motown sound!"  About 18 of us continued the celebration with an after-party at the Marriott Bistro Restaurant.

Thanks, Robert Bruno, for leading this event ... great job!


FEB. 28TH, 2016

It was a beautiful day at International Polo Club! Our reserved seating in the Lily Pulitzer Pavilion gave us a perfect view of the polo match.  Our group went out to take part in "stomping the divots," a time-honored tradition at polo events.  It was a close match that ended up going into overtime.  The Champagne reception and very lavish gourmet buffet were all part of the experience.  Eggs Benedict, omelet station, roast beef, prime rib, endless desserts (my fav was strawberry gelato), bacon wrapped dates, cheese blintz ... on and on.  I was only sad I couldn't try it all!!  Definitely something the Gators should add to our "worth repeating" events.


Warmest Regards,

Dorothy Rettay, V.P. Socials
