Kick off the 12 Hours of Sebring race festivities, a “throwback” Race Gala will take place on Wednesday, March 14 at the Sebring Civic Center. Attendees can celebrate the city’s internationally-acclaimed sports event and experience the race gala like many members of the Sebring community remember with good, old-fashioned community fun.

“The Race Gala has always been the race event for Sebring to celebrate the races and the exciting time in our community,” said Sebring Mayor John Shoop. “The Art League has done a great job carrying on the tradition of the Race Gala, and we are thrilled to bring the event back to its Wednesday night (before the race) date.”

The event takes place between 6 and 9 p.m. at the Jack Stroup Civic Center in downtown Sebring. Tickets are $50 each or $40 for members of the Highlands Art League. The member discount is good through March 13. All tickets at the door are $50 regardless of membership status. Member discount applicable with member code.

The event serves as a fundraiser for the Highlands Art League, which seeks to “encourage emerging and evolving artists of all ages and to positively impact our community through the celebration and exploration of the arts.”
