Graduation Gala

Each year our graduating residents and fellows are honored at a graduation gala. Last year was our first year holding this, our biggest event of the year, at the Floridan Palace Hotel in downtown Tampa. This restored hotel from the 1920’s is a breathtaking backdrop for our graduation proceedings. In addition, at last year’s event the Ingram Spellacy Society was given the floor to present a plaque to the department with the Founding Members names engraved. This plaque is currently on display in the academic offices. Annual awards are announced, graduation gifts are bestowed, and the entire faculty are on hand to congratulate our trainees. This year we will be inviting former residents and societal members to the podium to speak and share memories of their time at USF.

The Ingram Spellacy Society would like to extend an open invitation to all members to this year’s graduation event on June 15th 2018 which will be held again at the Rusty Pelican. We begin the evening with cocktails and networking, we have a plated three-course dinner, continue with our evening program, and end the night with drinks and dancing. Tickets can be purchased through our coordinator, Quincy Pier ( We hope you will join us for an amazing and fun-filled night!
