Boone Center, Inc. to Host “A Million Dreams” Gala
Boone Center, Inc. (BCI) will hold its 15th annual Behind the Mask gala on Saturday, February 5, 2022, at Water’s Edge Banquet Center in St. Peters, Mo. With a theme based upon the movie “The Greatest Showman”, guests are encouraged to dress with a carnival flair.
The black tie optional event will feature unique entertainment, heavy hors d’oeuvres, an open bar, live music by My Friend Mike, and a silent auction. Proceeds will benefit the non-profits’ employment facilities and programs for adults with disabilities.
“People with disabilities and their families count on us to help inspire and support their dreams of employment,” said BCI CEO Troy Compardo. “So the ‘A Million Dreams’ theme, which celebrates the differences in all of us, really fits our mission and how we will use the money we raise. It’s going to be an incredible night!”
At the gala, BCI will also present its Loving Hands Awards to recognize individuals, businesses or organizations that have made a significant difference in the lives of BCI employees. The distinguished honorees for 2022 are Jo Marie Lang and Distribution Management.
