Tuesday, November 28, 2017

Honoring Judge Ogden Bass

The evening will be emceed by Natasha Geigel of Fox 26 News. Tickets are available on line at “We feel very fortunate to be honoring Judge Bass and to have such distinguished speakers as Vince Young and Natasha Geigel,” said Amber Newman who is the Chief Executive Officer Boys & Girls Club of Brazoria County. “We will also have both a live and silent auction, wine pull, and live music by ‘The C.I.T.Y.’ along with wonderful food. It will be fun and benefit a very worthwhile organization.”

Post Harvey Pressure

In the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey, the club and its members experienced unusual financial pressures. “So many of the people who were flooded during Harvey not only had their homes damaged but they also missed work and were not paid during that time,” Newman said. “Add to that the flooding that occurred in locations where flood insurance was not available. People at or near the bottom of the economic and employment scales had even more put on them. It is for them and others like them we raise money and the Gala is a great way to do so.”
