Pirate or Mermaid... which shall you be when you join our soiree down by the sea?

The College of the Florida Keys is excited to invite you to our 2023 Seaside Soiree! This year’s 11th annual Seaside Soiree will be hosted at our new Upper Keys Center in Key Largo on Saturday, March 4th, 6- 10 p.m. We are planning a swashbuckling and splashy fun evening with dinner, drinks, live band, dancing, and a virtual silent auction. Costumes are encouraged! 

With a new Upper Keys Center and growing enrollment, our students and programs need support more than ever. You can make a difference in students' lives and invest in our collective future-- all while having fun at the Seaside Soiree!
