Food, fun, music and money are on tap at the Dolphin Athletic Club’s 2020 Drawdown, set for Feb. 1 at The Hangout. Get your tickets now for a chance to win a $7,500 grand prize. The Velcro Pygmies will be the musical entertainment, and a silent auction will offer fabulous packages and deals from local vendors.
“The drawdown is our single biggest fundraiser of the year,” says Mike Carey, president of the Dolphin Athletic Club. “We are excited to partner for the first time with the Hangout in Gulf Shores to host our 21st annual Drawdown.”
The Dolphin Athletic Club (DAC) is the official booster club of the Gulf Shores Dolphins and works in partnership with Gulf Shores City Schools to help fund athletic programs and meet the needs of student-athletes.
"It is our duty as a community to recognize the importance of education and investing in our local students,” says Derek Rowan, marketing manager at the Hangout.
"It is such an incredible opportunity to support these student-athletes in our local community because they are our future and legacy. The Hangout has proudly supported the local schools in Gulf Shores and Orange Beach for over a decade, and we will continue to do so in the years to come," Rowan says.
Tickets are $100 for two people, and include a buffet-style dinner, cold beer, wine, and the Velcro Pygmies show. Each couple will have one entry for the drawdown and a chance to win the $7,500 grand prize. A limited number of VIP table sponsorships are available.
DAC President Mike Carey says the club is hoping to sell 500 tickets. Donors can designate which sport their ticket purchase will benefit.
“Dolphin Nation” is the DAC battle cry as we support young men and women competing in 26 teams at the high school and middle school levels. The club helps pay for sports equipment, uniforms, nutrition and other needs. Founded in 1999, DAC also awards $1,000 scholarships to ten graduating seniors at Gulf Shores High School who have demonstrated excellence in athletics, leadership and community service.
The 2020 Dolphin Athletic Club Drawdown at the Hangout is sponsored by Southern Chevrolet and Culver’s Restaurant.
