From the Boys & Girls Clubs of Harford County:
The fifth annual gala to benefit the Boys & Girls Clubs of Harford County, “Brawl & Ball” will feature entertainment and exquisite food. The event will be held at the home of Diane Smith in Havre de Grace, MD from 6pm-11pm on Saturday, October 9, 2010.
“Brawl & Ball is a community classic event to raise funds for our Boys & Girls Clubs while providing a unique evening of quality entertainment for all who attend,” says event chair Diane Smith. “This year’s exquisite menu has been specially planned by Beechtree Catering’s own Chef Manny Martinez and is sure to exceed all expectations.”
This year Boys & Girls Clubs will spotlight Mission Youth Outreach which is a joint services program between the Armed Services and Boys & Girls Clubs of Harford County to reach out and serve military youth. Special guest speaker Colonel Orlando W. Ortiz will give remarks about Aberdeen Proving Ground Today & Tomorrow. We are pleased to have this year’s Brawl & Ball lead event sponsorship from Booz Allen Hamilton along with Metro Office Solutions as a Golden Book Sponsor.
Entertainment will be provided by the sounds of Fifth Avenue, a regional favorite. Guests will have the opportunity to bid on many fine items in a silent auction. In addition, amazing fine items will be available to the highest bidder in a live auction.
“The Brawl & Ball tradition started 5 years ago as a way to raise funds to support the children of Harford County. It is a way to bring together the caring people of Harford County to fight for the future of the county’s most vulnerable population- its children. It also provides an elegant night of fine dining and entertainment,” explains Diane. “The Boys & Girls Clubs are open to all youth, especially those who need us most, those who can not fight for themselves. There is a definite need in Harford County – these kids need our support. The theme this year is “Back to the Basics” which reaffirms that in our county everyone has a stake in helping a child excel.
Tickets are $500 per couple and can be purchased by contacting Linda Grimes at the Boys & Girls Club of Harford County 410-272-0010. The organization is also accepting in-kind donations as well as silent auction items. Limited sponsorship opportunities are still available.
