The411: I have just learned that the “Glitz and Glam…The Gala 2011 Event” adds the first overall pick in the 2010 NBA Draft to their guest list. They confirmed with me that former University of Kentucky Wildcat and Washington Wizard, NBA rookie John Wall will walk the Red Carpet on Saturday night at the Louisville Palace. The former Wildcat only played one season at Kentucky, but left a huge impression on the state and the tradition of Kentucky basketball.
Tichina Arnold, star of comedy sitcom “Martin” and “Everybody Hates Chris” secured her spot as the host of “Glitz and Glam…The Gala 2011 Event”. Tichina is excited about serving as an emcee for the gala and will bring her character and charisma to the stage to give the event just the right touch of glitz and glam!
This year’s featured entertainment for “The Gala” will be 10 time Award-Winning artist, Kenneth “Babyface” Edmonds. Also featured at this year’s Gala will be DJ “Kaos”, rap legend Slick Rick’s official DJ. He will keep the music going throughout the evening.
“Glitz and Glam…The Gala 2011 Event” will benefit the Boys and Girls Club of America with specific dollars going to the division in Shawnee Park.
