A Night Under the Stars Gala — June 25, 2022

You won’t want to miss our 7th Annual A Night Under the Stars Gala on June 25, 2022 at the Country Club of Missouri.

We are delighted to announce Mizzou’s Director of Athletics, Desiree Reed-Francois, as our keynote speaker this year. Hired in August 2021, she brings with her more than 25 years of experience in intercollegiate athletics. Reed-Francois is the first female athletic director in Mizzou’s history, the first female athletic director in a public institution in the SEC and was the first Hispanic female and woman of color athletics director at the Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS) level.

Our Gala is always a beautiful night with silent and live auctions, inspiring speakers, a delicious dinner, and an awards ceremony recognizing several of the kids in our program for the amazing things they are doing!
