51st Annual Boys ​Town ​Booster Banquet

​​​​ 2018 Boys Town Booster Banquet - May 2  

2018 Booster Banquet Speaker Announced

Please join us on Tuesday, May 1 to hear NFL player and master magician Jon ​Dorenbos speak at the 51st Annual Boys Town Booster Banquet at The Embassy Suites in LaVista! Purchase your tickets or tables now!

Jon has played in the NFL for thirteen seasons, but many will know him from his magic performances on NBC's hit television show America's Got Talent. Through his amazing magic, Jon emphasizes the importance of choice and openly shares his childhood tragedy. When he was twelve years old, Jon's picture-perfect family was destroyed after his father murdered his mother. Jon chose to rise up through adversity, set goals – no matter how high – and plan and execute the necessary steps required to accomplish those goals.

While performing the most remarkable magic, Jon inspires others by sharing his life experiences and NFL stories, and also by discussing the importance of discipline, teamwork, perseverance, and the acceptance of failure in achieving goals. In his words, "Live in vision, not circumstance."

Doors will open at 5:30 p.m. for the silent auction. After the silent auction ends at 7 p.m., dinner will be served and the program will begin. The first part of the program will be recognizing the 2018 Competing with Character award winners who will share their stories of success thanks to Boys Town athletic programs. Next, there will be a live auction followed by the Boys Town athletes being recognized for their outstanding accomplishments this schoolyear. The evening will conclude with our outstanding keynote speaker, Jon Dorenbos. 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 being a sponsor, please contact Herb Hames at 402-498-3322 or

We hope to see you May 1!
