It was "exciting and new" so set your sails for a new adventure and join us at the annual Davis County Gala — where you're the guest star!

The Davis County Commissioners invite you to support the Boys and Girls Club, the selected charity for 2013's gala. You can make a powerful difference in bringing a NEW Boys and Girls Club site to Davis County... our children need it.

Enjoy a black-tie (life preserver optional) affair and incredible cruise-line cuisine on board The Love Boat.

The entertainment for the evening will be the renowned VooDoo Orchestra — a big band, swing orchestra and singers ready to take you back to the good ole' days. Plus, you never know who may show up!

The VooDoo Orchestra

Taking its cues from bands like the Brian Setzer Orchestra, the Atomic Fireballs, and Big Bad Voodoo Daddy, the Voodoo Orchestra revisits the high energy jump swing of the '30s and '40s. With Rat Pack swagger, this dynamic entertainment conspiracy features top notch musicians who faithfully celebrate the music and style of one of America's golden ages of music.

The Boys & Girls Club

 

The Boys and Girls Club (BGC) has long been a powerful youth advocate in communities across the nation. Davis County has only a small presence at North Davis Junior High School. The need for our children reaches across our County, and we have an incredible life-changing opportunity to establish a new Davis County site of the Boys and Girls Club.  With recent donations and potential sites, the path is paved for an effective new facility that will host children that need it the most.Your donation will directly impact the youth of Davis County.

The Heart of Davis Award

The Heart of Davis Award will be presented to Lagoon Amusement Park!  This marks the first time ever that the award is being given to a business rather than an individual.  "We are thrilled, Lagoon is the perfect recipient of the Heart of Davis," said Commission Chair John Petroff. "In Lagoon's 127 years of amusement service they have employed, mentored, and launched hundreds of thousands of young people into the workforce, providing training, a paycheck, and an education in hard work.  We felt the ripples of the positive impact combined with the great venue Lagoon provides for family gatherings and the tourism impact to Davis County and the State of Utah clearly validate Lagoon's worthy nomination for this award."
