Proceeds from this year’s gala event will be donated to the Eastern Missouri Family YMCA Project. It was noted that on numerous occasions area residents, businesses and organizations have risen to the needs to improve and benefit the local communities. The area should be very proud of the accomplishments to construct new facilities for existing and new businesses in 2017. It is desired for the event to become a standing tradition and serve as a helpful mechanism to bring communities together and support local needs.
