Though we couldn’t be together for our traditional Member Celebration this summer, we would be remiss if we didn’t recognize our amazing membership community and celebrate a tremendous 2019-20 season.

But giving that kind of thanks takes more than a moment — it takes a week!

So starting next Monday, Aug. 10, Florida Citrus Sports is hosting a series of unique events celebrating our members’ commitment to Florida Citrus Sports and our collective impact throughout the Central Florida community.

Scroll below for a full schedule for Member Appreciation Week presented by AdventHealth, including links to register for each day’s event!

FIRST DAY: AdventHealth Book Drive
