Young Alumni Holiday Happy Hour!
This month's YA Happy Hour will be at BlackFinn American Grille from 6-9PM on Thursday, December 12. We will also be collecting unwrapped gifts and toys to donate to the local Salvation Army. Come spread the holiday cheer, make a donation to brighten a child's day this holiday season, and have some holiday spirits too!

Get Up and Give Homecoming Club Membership Challenge - EXTENDED!!!
For the 2013-2014 year, the University of Florida is embarking on the Preeminence Initiative, the University's goal of being a Top Ten Public University in the nation. Part of this national ranking is calculated by Alumni participation, and your membership can push us over the top!
To celebrate the Gator Homecoming week, the UF Alumni Association is hosting a nationwide membership competition! The UFAA will make a $1,000 donation to the Gator Club with this highest membership increase! Renewal memberships, lifetime memberships, annual memberships and student memberships all count, and you do not need to be a Gator alum, only a Gator fan and UF supporter! UFAA membership comes with many perks, including discounts to nationwide businesses, UFAA Gameday tailgates at Emerson Alumni Hall, and access to other UFAA members only events.
To sweeten the pot a little bit, the Gator Club of Jacksonville will be holding an exclusive raffle to all who can show proof of renewal or new membership to a designated board member at any club meeting between now and January 1. One lucky new member will be drawn to win a piece of Gator memorabilia autographed by Coach Will Muschamp! Must be present at the meeting to win.
Join today, renew today, refer a friend, or gift membership to a Gator you love for the holidays! Your membership can help the University of Florida reach the top 10 and help the Gator Club of Jacksonville win a $1,000 scholarship for a local Jacksonville high school senior attending UF next year!
Thank you for your continued support of the Univesity of Florida and the Gator Club of Jacksonville!

Introducing... Gatorville Swamp Week!
The Gator Club of Jacksonville wants to send everyone a big thank you for participating in our first ever Gatorville Swamp Week! We had a great week of events, including building a Gator Club parade float for the local Veterans Day Parade, a canned food drive for the holidays at our club meeting, participating in College Night at the Jacksonville Fair, a YA hapy hour and sending Christmas cards to our troops overseas!
Thank you to all who participated, and we look forward to another Gatorville Swamp Week next year!
