The event begins at 5:30 p.m. with cocktails and a silent auction, followed by the dinner and awards presentation at 7:00 p.m. ESPN reporter and play-by-play commentator Holly Rowe will serve as Master of Ceremonies. The attire is black tie.

Proceeds from the event will benefit the Kelly Cares Foundation which supports education, healthcare, and community building initiatives, the core values of the Kelly family. The Foundation has established itself as a “Playbook for Hope” in its local community and nationally, as it seeks to provide direct and immediate assistance for as many people as possible.
