The Northwest Florida Gator Club will host its annual preseason event Aug. 22 at Phineas Phogg’s inside Seville Quarter.
The free event for area supporters of the Florida Gators will feature Pat Dooley, a sports columnist for The Gainesville Sun, addressing preseason practice and assessing the season.

The event will begin at 5 p.m. with a social hour, followed by the program at 6:15. There will be light food, a silent auction for Florida Gators gifts and travel packages, along with posters and schedules.
