Come join fellow EMERGE members and friends at our highest anticipated event of the year, our annual gala! This year, we are taking you underground to a local "speakeasy" in downtown Lakeland for a night of glitz, glamour, giveaways, and casino-themed entertainment. This event serves as EMERGE's annual meeting, where we reflect on the past year and announce our new EMERGE Chair for 2023! We will be having a cocktail-style reception, cash bar, and announcing some of EMERGE's award winners of the year! This is a signature event you do NOT want to miss!
