FEATURING:

Expert Speakers  |  Panel Discussions  |  Music & Entertainment   |  Online Auction Remote “House Parties”


This year’s gala is hosted by UF Health The Villages® Hospital Auxiliary Foundation and The Villages® Homeowners Advocates (VHA). Our theme this year is “Believe” because, in trying times, hope is our greatest asset. We believe that, together, we can persevere and overcome any obstacles life throws our way, and still bring hope to those in need. We believe. We want to make you a believer, too!

Specialists from UF Health and local physicians will present exciting new information on relevant topics such as the COVID-19 virus. There will be panel discussions, virtual “House Parties” held in homes throughout The Villages®, and an online auction during which you will have the opportunity to bid on and purchase exclusive items, exciting experiences, and gift cards to your favorite shops and restaurants.

Can you still make a real difference, even with everything going on in the world today?
You better believe it!
