Dream Team

TaxSlayer Gator Bowl Dream Team

In 2017, we partnered with Dreams Come True to create the TaxSlayer Gator Bowl Dream Team. Together, each year we join twelve youth from different parts of Northeast Florida and South Georgia who suffer from a variety of illnesses to serve on our Dream Team. The goal is to give these children and their families hope and fun experiences involving sports as they fight their medical battles.


The Dream Team experience includes:

  • Signing Day: The group officially joins the TaxSlayer Gator Bowl Dream Team on signing day as we host a press conference where they sign their ‘letter of intent’ in front of local media, TaxSlayer Gator Bowl members and their friends and family.
  • Gator Bowl Sports Member Socials: Dream Team members and their families are invited to attend each of our Member Socials throughout the fall and are introduced at the September Member Social.
  • Scouting Trip to Gainesville: Each fall, we take a bus down to the University of Florida with the Dream Team and their families for a fun-filled day of college football watching the Florida Gators and their opponent.
  • Green Jacket Ceremony at TaxSlayer Gator Bowl Holiday Party: At the conclusion of the college football regular season, the Dream Team will graduate from their Dream Team jerseys to TaxSlayer Gator Bowl green jackets officially making them honorary Dream Team members of the TaxSlayer Gator Bowl committee for life.
  • Meet & Greet with TaxSlayer Gator Bowl Teams: During game week while TaxSlayer Gator Bowl teams are in town, Dream Team members get the opportunity to meet and talk with players, coaches, cheerleaders and mascots from both teams.
  • Game Day Pre-Game Tailgate + On-Field Recognition: The Dream Team season concludes with TaxSlayer Gator Bowl game day where they meet for a pre-game tailgate party, attend the TaxSlayer Gator Bowl and are honored on-field during the game!
