50th Annual Boys ​Town ​Booster Banquet

​​​​​​2017 Boys Town Booster Banquet - May 2

Please join us ​Tuesday, May 2 to hear Olympic Gold Medalist Dominique Dawes speak at the 50th annual Boys ​Town ​Booster Banquet at The Embassy Suites in LaVista!


Dominique Dawes is the only American gymnast to medal at three different Olympic ​​Games in the team competition and ​the first African-American gymnast to win an Olympic Gold medal. Dominique paved the way for other young African-American gymnasts to strive for Olympic glory, including 2012 Olympic All-Around Gold Medalist Gabrielle Douglas. At the 1996 Atlanta Games, Dominique became the first female African-American gymnast to win an individual medal, capturing bronze with her floor exercise performance, helping solidify her place in the USOC Hall of Fame. Dominique, appointed by President Barack Obama, currently serves as the co-chair of ​the President's Council on Fitness, Sports & Nutrition alongside NFL Quarterback Drew Brees.

Doors will open at 5:30 for the silent auction, but you can start bidding early on a few select items!

We are excited to once again have mobile bidding at this year's Booster ​Banquet! In order to bid on any silent auction items at the event, you will need to register your mobile device so please be sure you do this prior to arriving the night of the event. Registration will be coming soon.

After the silent auction ends at 7 p.m., dinner will be served and the program will begin! The 2017 Competing with Character award winners will share their story of success thanks to Boys Town athletic programs before the highly anticipated keynote from Dominique. There will also be a live auction before Boys Town athletes are recognized for their outstanding accomplishments this school year. This is a kid-friendly event that will be over by 9 p.m.

Sponsors are still needed for this event. If your company is interested in sponsoring this community event, please contact Herb Hames at 402-498-3322 or herb.hames@boystown.org.

We hope to see you May 2!​
