Please join us on Tuesday, April 30 to hear NBA veteran and champion, Bruce Bowen, speak at the 52nd Annual Boys Town Booster Banquet at The Embassy Suites in LaVista! Purchase your tickets or tables now!

Former San Antonio Spurs forward Bruce Bowen is a three-time NBA Champion and an eight-time NBA All-Defensive Team selection who made a name for himself with his ability to stop the league's best scorers. A 13-year NBA veteran, Bowen ranks sixth on the Spurs' all-time list for 3-point field goals made and is just the fourth San Antonio Spur to earn All-Defensive honors three or more times, joining David Robinson, Tim Duncan and Alvin Robertson. In 2012, the Spurs retired Bowen's #12 jersey.

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. 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 531-355-3322 or
