    What is a Creative Black Tie Event? This is a fun one. Men can take their black tuxedo and add a trendy tie, vest or colored shirt. You can go so far as to wear dressy overalls with your tuxedo jacket. Women can accessorize their formal or cocktail attire with unusual jewelry, a boa, fun shoes, etc. Let your personalities guide your creativity. (Birthday suits are restricted!)
    What is a Taste of Kearney? This “foodie” event pulls together some of the best food in Kearney and provides a fun social gathering where attendees can sample all the goodies.
    What is a Cork Pull? It's a game of chance with a tempting prize you won't be able to refuse!

    Thank you to the following fabulous committee members who helped to plan this fantastic event: 
    Jewelee Cox, Dan Holt, Kristen Atwell, Niki Allen, Michelle Turner, Shannon Lykins, & Lisa Friedel.
