Former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee in his keynote address to those in attendance at the Boys and Girls Club of the Ozarks Thanks4giving Gala Thursday night at the Branson Convention Center heard the message of investing in future leaders and members of the work force through the club.

That message was also delivered by several officials of the club including director Stoney Hayes who introduced several opportunities of sustained giving.

The ceremonies also included entertainment from club members, honoring the Junior Youth of the Year Hailey Fox, plus a live auction conducted by event emcee Kirk Elmquist.
