Food-and-drink festivals allow people to diversify their palates in one day, a feat previously attainable only by cramming five frozen dinners and a variety pack of juice boxes into a blender. Savor expanding horizons with this Groupon: for $30, you get a VIP ticket to Gator Stompin’ from The Pledge 5 Foundation on Thursday, May 3 (a $65 value). Admission includes the following:

  • 13 tokens to be used for food, drink, and games
  • An unlimited transportation wristband
  • A 5”x7” commemorative photograph<p>

For 30 years, Gator Stompin’ has brought students and residents of the Gator Nation together to descend on the city for a day of drinking, live music, and raucous merriment. This year, the Gainesville mainstay decks out pub crawlers with a stylish T-shirt that acts as an all-access pass to more than 50 restaurants, bars, and nightclubs. VIP guests enjoy free transportation through downtown, where they can pop into local watering holes such as Gator City and The Grog House Bar & Grill, before sauntering into the Grooveshark-sponsored rooftop preparty at the Holiday Inn or brashly crashing a land-shark party uninvited. Local bands spray-paint the walls with original music as Gator enthusiasts carouse with neighbors and compete for more than $5,000 in raffle prizes. Upon the event’s completion, VIP participants receive a souvenir photograph that both commemorates their experience and reveals any mustard that might have been trapped in their mustache bristles.

The Pledge 5 Foundation, a nonprofit organization, hosts Gator Stompin’, in addition to working with charitable partners to inspire others to give back to their communities, hosting promotional events such as food and clothing drives, pet adoptions, and Kiss a Cabby campaigns.

Pledge 5 Foundation and Thrift 5

As a nonprofit organization, the Pledge 5 Foundation conducts food, clothing, and public-service pledge drives for its numerous charity partners. In conjunction with each of these charity drives, it hosts community-centered promotional events—pub crawls, pet adoptions, and tailgating parties—that aim to inspire people to give back to their community. Pledge 5's staff, interns, student association, and service chamber all work to create positive change throughout the Gainesville community by stimulating local commerce and planting popsicle gardens. Pledge 5 is dedicated to increasing the number of volunteers in the community and encouraging the community's public service participation.

The Pledge 5 Foundation, in addition to working with charitable partners to inspire others to give back to their communities, also hosts a bargain shop known as Thrift 5, providing gently used and brand new goods to the denizens of Gainesville. The store stocks everything from brand name clothing to home decor and many other products. Patrons may also make tax-deductible donations to the store and volunteer at the shop. Thrift 5 also features local artist showcases.
