Become a Jockey


Interested in becoming a Jockey or know someone who would be a great fit? The ABOA's select group of honorees, affectionately titled Jockeys, are a group of Tampa Bay's emerging and established leaders who have been nominated by their peers to be one of the faces of the second annual Jockeys & Juleps Kentucky Derby themed Gala. Our Jockeys serve an extension of the American Cancer Society to advocate for its mission to impact every cancer and every life with a local focus. They know their way around town, are well-connected, and philanthropic. They want to influence their community and make an impact in the fight to #SaveLives and #GiveHope by raising a minimum of $5,000.
