Postponed: The Bob Graham Center Annual Gathering

Wednesday, May 6, 2020

Tampa, Fla. (Venue: Florida Aquarium)

The Bob Graham Center Annual Gathering provides a special opportunity to bring friends and supporters of the Center together for an evening of celebration and recognition.  During the course of the event, the Center will recognize the achievements of its students and pay tribute to Florida citizens who have made extraordinary contributions to our state. These individuals have used their personal and professional talents to make Florida a better place for its citizens. Through the Citizen of the Year and Young Floridian awards, the Center hopes to emphasize that true success is measured not only by educational and professional achievement, but also by the ways we contribute to the well-being of others and our society.

Citizenship Awards

A highlight of each Graham Gathering is the awarding of the Florida Citizen of the Year and Young Floridian Award. These awards recognize individuals who have made substantial contributions to the state of Florida both professionally and civically.
