Tickets are also available for a chance to win a sterling silver and 18 karat gold John Hardy “Naga Legends” bracelet. Tickets are $5 per ticket or $20 for five tickets.

Proceeds raised for the 14th Annual BBB event will be used for scholarships and supplies to benefit the 2020 Kids’ College and Camp Save-A-Life programs. These programs are designed for students who will be in first through eighth grade. The 2019 programs served over 160 kids from Hope, Texarkana, and the surrounding communities. The UAHT Camp Save-A-Life program serves approximately 50 students in seventh and eighth grade on the Hope and Texarkana campuses.
