Over 1,300 guests are expected to attend Boys and Girls Country’s 25th Annual Heritage Award Dinner featuring entertainment by comedian, actor, and impressionist Frank Caliendo. Caliendo has been making people laugh his entire life and is well known for his impressions of celebrities including Al Pacino, Robert DeNiro, George W. Bush, John Madden and Dr. Phil. On stage, Caliendo’s high energy act is a blend of observations, impressions, characters and anecdotal stories that start at a frenetic pace and never let up. He has comedy specials running regularly on TBS and Comedy Central and he is a regular on the talk show circuit. His live shows are appealing to everyone by continually including a bit of every major genre – sports, political figures, and celebrities.
The event honors Boys and Girls Country’s Teaching Parents for their dedication to our children. Teaching Parents step into the role of parents, doing everything that a mom or dad would do, including helping the children with homework, preparing meals, supporting their school activities, and encouraging their interests. Teaching Parents build trusting relationships with the children while teaching them life skills that support their success throughout their lives.
“Teaching Parents provide the children who call Boys and Girls Country home with educational and emotional support, holding them accountable to their peers and the greater community, and encouraging them to dream big and achieve goals,” says Co-Chair Penny Loyd.
“We have set aside this special evening as a way to recognize the Teaching Parents,” says Co-Chair Steve Stephens. “They are the heart of our program and it is a privilege to honor them in this way.”
The evening will begin with a cocktail reception followed by silent and live auctions. Major underwriters include Jeff and Mindy Hildebrand, Loyd Charitable Foundation, Paul Sorensen and Bryan Herr.
Proceeds from the event benefit Boys and Girls Country, a home for children whose families are in crisis. Boys and Girls Country raises these youth in a Christian home environment with the goal of them becoming self-sustaining and contributing adults. The nonprofit organization does not receive government funding and is not a United Way member agency. All monies raised come from the generosity of individuals, foundations and corporations.
