Great futures are begin at the Boys & Girls Club of Benton County and to celebrate this, the Club hosted its annual Great Futures Gala on April 20. Held at the John Q. Hammons Center in Rogers, the Gala was sponsored by Unilever. Joe Grady, Vice President of Candy and Impulse Merchandising for Walmart, served as honorary chairman of the event.
Nearly 500 people attended the gala. The evening kicked off with a social hour and VIP wine tasting. After a silent auction and dinner, children from the local clubs came onstage to talk about what they want to be when they grow up. Their “great futures” included everything from being a taxi driver to a doctor. A live auction included use of the Cox Communications suite for a Northwest Arkansas Naturals game and a five-night stay for 12 in a French chateau. The party carried into the night with dancing to the music of Ultra Suede.
