C3EL's 2019 SOFIC Evening Event


We had a great turn-out for our SOFIC Evening Event that was held on May 21, 2019!

The event took place in The Vault, which is a historic location in downtown Tampa. Our guests enjoyed a night of industry networking, fine gourmet cuisine, live concerts, top-shelf open bar, raffle prizes and much more!

This event was such a great success that we are already looking towards next year to make it even bigger and better!

We are very grateful to our sponsors who helped make this event happen. They include:

· Vanguard LED Displays

· Dell

· FedData

· RGB Spectrum

· Extron

· Daktronics

· Harman / AMX

· Thinklogical

· Replay Guitar

· Legrand

· CIS Secure

As guests arrived, they were greeted with complimentary valet parking and a red carpet entrance. After checking-in guests received an official C3EL challenge coin granting them exclusive access to The Vault and all our vendors who were ready to demonstrate and share information about their company and products.

Acoustic music performed by the band Raydio filled the room as guests continued to network and treat themselves to gourmet cuisine featuring prime rib, lobster tail, slider stations, and much more.

It wasn’t long before the Vault really started rockin’ as C3EL’s own Billie McDuffee and the Tradesmen took to the stage and performed an assortment of rock and roll classics.

Additionally, we are so grateful to all the organizations who generously donated prizes for us to include in our raffle drawings. Their generous contributions allowed us to raffle off over 30 outstanding prizes. Thanks to their efforts and the tremendous participation from our guests we were able to raise a significant amount of money that will be donated to the Wounded Warrior Project and K9s for Warriors.

All of us at C3EL are extremely happy to have the opportunity to help these great organizations continue providing valuable assistance to our service men and women.

We encourage you to continue to support our service members, veterans and these organizations. Information and links to the group’s pages are below:
