Event Details

The Table in the Park” EAT DRINK AND BE GIVING is a celebration launching the 2017 Holiday Season in Tampa.

It is a unique outdoor fundraising dinner to support “EXCEL” MacDonald Training Center’s new job training program in technology. This new program is critically needed as it has been designed to meet the skills and capabilities of young adults on the autism spectrum, many of whom have Special Education diplomas and little hope for employment. The curriculum was developed in collaboration with local universities. MTC will launch the new workforce development program in the fall.

MacDonald Training Center is collaborating with the City of Tampa, and The Tampa Downtown Partnership to present “The Table in the Park” to raise awareness and funding for the new initiative.

The “Table in the Park” is a great way to welcome Downtown’s Winter Village, with its ice rink and shops. Following the dinner there will be a free outdoor movie provided by Tampa Theatre.

Cigar City will unveil a new seasonal brew created expressly for the dinner! The expectation is that this will grow this into an annual event, benefitting not only the individuals with disabilities, but the community at large.

We are honored that The Lightning Foundation, Publix Super Market Charities, Bank of America, The Tampa Bay Times and the Tampa Downtown Partnership are all sponsoring this event.
