Crowning the Homecoming King and Queen

Gala Court nominees are responsible for launching their campaign for the Homecoming Gala and will be responsible for raising funds and awareness, supporting Kendrick Fincher Hydration for Life. Think “High School Homecoming Court” but BETTER! This is a competition for ultimate bragging rights for a phenomenal cause. Homecoming court recipients compete for the top two spots which come with the title of Homecoming Queen, King, or Royalty (title open for winner preference).

Make sure and check out the awesome auction items we have this year!

All things BLUE!
(Pull out your nice blue jeans and a jacket, pull out the sparkly blue cocktail dress, or what about that awesome blue pant suite you have! We left it up to you.)

Parking is located in the event center parking lot, the library parking garage, or on the side streets.
