The evening festivities concluded on the front lawn with a live performance by local band Pat O & The Show giving guests the opportunity to dance the night away and enjoy the beautiful summer evening.\n\n\n\n“I couldn’t be happier with the results of On the Road. This event helped raise funds for the metro area Clubs to continue to provide a safe, nurturing environment for city youth,” said BGCM Guild President Samantha Wahl. “I am so proud of all the hard work everyone put into this amazing event, thank you.”\n\nNotable speaker of the evening was the 2014 State Youth of the Year, Jabaree Culliver of Westside Boys & Girls Club.
