Sponsored by Gatorland, Dine with the Departed includes dinner, silent and live auction items and lantern-lit tours through the cemetery to meet and hear those stories from the past.

The event is from 6 to 9 p.m.

Individual tickets for Dine with the Departed are $75 and it includes the catered dinner and open bar. Corporate tables for 10 guests are $750 and it includes dinner and open bar plus special recognition at the event.
