Gainesville, FL – October 24, 2023 – The Collier Companies is delighted to announce a generous $5,000 donation in support of the 2023 A Very GNV Holiday Parade. This significant contribution will play a pivotal role in ensuring the success and merriment of the upcoming holiday parade, showcasing The Collier Companies’ unwavering commitment to enhancing the community.
Former head coach of the Florida Gators football team and 1966 Heisman Trophy winner, Steve Spurrier, has been named the grand marshal of the City of Gainesville’s 2023 A Very GNV Holiday Parade. “It’s a very nice honor,” said Coach Spurrier, noting the surprising fact that he’s served in this capacity only once before – as grand marshal of the 2016 University of Florida homecoming parade.
Coach Spurrier, a beloved figure in Gainesville, brings a unique and charismatic touch to this year’s parade, promising to make it a memorable experience for all attendees.
