The invitation lists Doug Cone and Danny Gaekwad as the hosts. Cone is the owner of Ocala-based alcohol distributor Cone Distributing. Gaekwad runs IT, hotel and restaurant businesses and was recently appointed to the University of Central Florida Board of Trustees by Gov. Rick Scott.

The fundraiser will get underway at 5:00 pm. Those looking to attend can RSVP with Southern Strategy Group’s Sydney Ridley via ridley@sostrategy.com or Team Cone’s Gina Nativio via gnativio@conedist.com.
