    No this is not a plea for money! Lol

    Little back story 1st...

    On Oct 29, 2019 my dad was diagnosed with brain cancer. He had surgery & his body wasn’t able to over come the mersa & he passed away on Jan 29, 2020 at 64. He is truly missed. My mom & dad were together for 50 years & married 48 of those. I promised him I would take care of my mom and so far I feel like I’ve did the best I can. I talk with her every day & see her most. She just joined CrossFit with me & my wife so she is also doing fairly well. She has her moments but she always will.

    So here the assistant I need...

    I always wanted to bring my parents to a Gator game. They are both huge fans(dad more than mom) but it never worked out because they were millwrights & always on the road. My wife, myself, my mom & a cousin of mine are going to vacation starting Nov 14th. We are headed to Disney(my dad worked there in 1978 & my mom hasn’t been back since) for a week so we are taking her back. When the Arkansas game time was released it became the prefect opportunity to get my mom to a Gators game. So I’m asking if anyone has 4 tickets they would be willing to sell or part with so I can make this happen. My mom has no idea I’m trying to get her to a game & it would make her day if I can make it happen.

    Thank you for taking time to read my post.

    Sincerely,
    Heath

    I believe they have had available tickets for all the home games so far so I would think they are available for that game at the ticket office.

    Ticket Exchange at floridagators.com has available tickets for that game for groups of four. So does ticketmaster.com
