Mayor Buckhorn presided over the rapid growth and increased vibrancy of Tampa’s urban core during his two terms as mayor of Tampa.  With a focus on community engagement, infill development, business partnerships and the previously underutilized Hillsborough River, Mayor Buckhorn led Tampa’s transformation into what is now a top city for corporate business, private equity and start-ups, with a thriving young professional economy.

The evening’s activities will begin with a cocktail social hour and silent auction from 5:00 – 6:00 p.m. featuring beer, wine, a signature cocktail and hors d’oeuvres. The program will be held from 6:15 – 7:30 to include remarks from Mayor Buckhorn, discussion and Q & A. Desserts and cocktails will be served from 7:30 – 8 p.m. along with the conclusion of the silent auction.
