The Gala is an annual formal fundraising event held in late winter to raise capital and support for the Meade Activity Center. The event brings members of the community together and includes a silent auction followed by a catered dinner for attendees, and concludes with a question and answer session with a national celebrity. Special guests have included legendary news anchor Dan Rather, and PGA Tour Member and championship golfer Kenny Perry. The 2012 Gala will feature founding member and lead singer of The Eagles, Don Henley.
Monies raised from the Gala go to help fund MAC operations and projects throughout the year. In an effort to give back to the Meade County Community, financial assistance can be awarded through the Fun and Fitness for Everyone program. This funding is generated from the Gala and other fundraising ventures.
The Gala is currently the organization’s most supported and well attended event. Its success drives the opportunities the Meade Activity Center can provide for the community.
