Bid online for Orlando Shakes Gala restaurant and hotel experiences

Written By Scott Joseph On April 3, 2024

Shakes Gala 24

The 2024 Gala for Orlando Shakes in Partnership with UCF, celebrating the professional theater’s 35th season, is Sunday April 14, and once again I’ve selected a collection of restaurants and experiences for the event’s silent auction.

Unfortunately, the gala is sold out. But you can still participate in the silent auction. In fact, it’s open online now. Just click here.

An impressive array of restaurants and resorts have donated gift cards, dinners, overnight stays and in a couple of cases dinner and an overnight stay. I may be bidding against you on some of these items.

Proceeds will help Orlando’s oldest professional theater to continue producing top notch shows – “Ain’t Misbehavin’” runs April 10 through 28 – and also support its educational programs that help introduce kids to the wonders of live productions.

Here is a sampling of some of the items you’ll find on the gala’s silent auction page.

One-night stay at JW Marriott Grande Lakes and dinner at Michelin-recommended Primo

Dinner for two at Four Flamingos: A Richard Blais Florida Kitchen
