Annual Bravo Gala

It’s time to mark your calendar for one of the best parties of the year: The eighth annual Bravo Gala will be Feb. 2 at Hy-Vee Hall at the Iowa Events Center. This year’s fête will once again feature the popular Ken Arlen Orchestra, plus a presentation of the Encore and Bravo award recipients, plenty of food, and a signature drink made with Iowa-grown grains from the Mississippi River Distilling Company. The dessert stations, we’re told, are being “strongly influenced” by co-chairs Kyle Krause, CEO and president of Kum & Go, and Robert J. Myers, president and CEO of Casey’s General Stores. The soiree begins at 6:30 p.m. Tickets are $250 per person; registration deadline is Jan. 18. Black tie optional. For reservations or more information, contact event director Kendra Daly at or 537-2001.
