Puttin’ on the Ritz is Gainesville’s premiere black-tie affair. For the past 30 years, this event has been a fun experience for our guests and a great way to help kids! It's a night filled with live entertainment, dancing, an extensive silent auction and the finest cuisine and beverages of Gainesville.
