“I look forward to taking some ribbing from my friends to help raise money for critically needed programs and services for at-risk youth. I am honored to help in any way possible,” said Beach.
The event will be presented by the Malon D. Mimms Co. at 6:30 p.m. Sept. 25 at the Northside Hospital-Cherokee Conference Center, 1130 Bluffs Parkway.
Robert Mimms, president of Mimms Enterprises and Board Chair, said he was delighted to see Beach agree to become the “roastee.”
Jamie Bendall, owner of the Punchline Comedy Club and a professional comedian, will be the Master of Ceremonies for the fifth year, “turning up the heat” on Beach and adding his own comical remarks.
Roasters to date include: Lt. Gov. Casey Cagle; Mark Burkhalter, Senior Strategic Advisor with McKenna Long & Aldridge and former Speaker of the State House of Representatives; and Al Nash, partner with The Columns Group.
“The funds raised from the annual Charity Roast help the local Malon D. Mimms Boys & Girls Club offer after school services, leadership development programs and a safe haven for at-risk and disadvantaged youth in our community. By pulling together, we can make a difference.” said Cherokee County Manager Jerry Cooper, who is the 2014 Roast Committee chairman.
Tickets are $75 per person and include a cocktail reception, live entertainment and a buffet of gourmet hors d’oeuvres, along with the opportunity to bid and win silent and live auction items.
Center Cut Catering has been selected to cater the affair.
The community is invited to help support the club through sponsorships, donations to the auction and attending the special event that historically raises more than $75,000 annually and has raised over $600,000 since the first event was held more than 10 years ago.
The Boys & Girls Club offers a variety of programs and activities to its youth members in an effort to empower them to become productive adults. A professionally trained staff engages members in specially designed programs that focus on the fundamentals of health, education and employability.
