7th Annual MAC Gala – What a Night

IMG_1777MAC Executive Director Aaron Greenwell, Chris Tucker, & Jessica Greenwell


The 7th Annual MAC Matters Gala was a wonderful evening for the Meade Activity Center and our local community. Folks from all across our region turned out for the annual Meade Activity Center Gala, held in Brandenburg, Ky. on April 26th.  With a sellout crowd on-hand, Actor & Comedian Chris Tucker provided a very interesting story and Q & A while guests enjoyed local band Jericho Woods.

Todd and Kari Wagner played a huge role in the success of the event, including providing the guest of honor.  Kari, a Meade County native who grew up in Battletown, KY has been an advocate since the MAC’s inception. The Wagners have provided previous guests of honor including Kenny Perry, Dan Rather, Don Henley, Michael Johnson and Monica Seles. Early projections have this year’s gala yielding over $40,000 to be utilized toward operations and financial scholarships for families in need toward programs and events.
