 As part of the kick off to the 12 Hours of Sebring race festivities, our “throwback” Race Gala has been for several years an opportunity to celebrate the week, celebrate art while raising money for our Children’s Art Camp, and to support and recognize the work of local artists. At the Race Gala, attendees are invited to 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.”
