The 9th Annual “Night at the Nest” was held on Nov. 30, 2018, at Alico Arena on the campus of Florida Gulf Coast University. The sell-out crowd of 800 was treated to appetizers, an open bar and a sit-down dinner. There was an amazing array of silent auction items, as well as a live auction called by Jay Severson. Live items included a VIP Masters experience, a private concert by the Ben Allen Band and a Napa Valley experience. Student athletes set tables, served meals, cleared tables and helped identify bidders. WINK TV’s Lois Thome served as event emcee.
