%u201CWe are very excited about this year%u2019s event,%u201D said Brandi Welk, development director. %u201CSupport from the community has been fantastic. We have exceeded last year%u2019s sponsorship dollars by more than 50 percent and there are only a very few tickets left. The chances to win the Rat Pack Rolex have also been popular, whether purchasers plan to be at the event or not. It is going to be a great fundraiser.%u201D Net proceeds will benefit Council on Aging of West Florida and the programs and services it provides to seniors and their families throughout Escambia and Santa Rosa Counties.
