BLACK TIE: 5th Annual Central Florida Dreamplex Gala & Auction
CLERMONT Hip-hop and ballet performances — as well as both a four-time Olympian and a Heisman trophy winner in the building — were just a few highlights of the night during the Fifth Annual Central Florida Dreamplex Gala and Auction. Games, a silent auction and special appearances from four-time Olympic champion Chaunte Lowe and from former Gators and NFL quarterback Tim Tebow all helped round out the evening. The Dreamplex is “the only sports, fitness and recreational facility in Central Florida designed specifically for those with special needs…” and welcomes people of all ages, backgrounds and groups with physical impairments, developmental delays and other special needs. Funds raised from the gala — themed “Get in the Game” this year — will help bring the Dreamplex’s second phase to life, allowing it to expand in who it can serve and what it can provide, such as recreational activities, alternative therapy and adaptive sports.
