HOPE, AR – The 10th Annual Beads, Bags, and Bangles is set for February 18th at Historic Washington State Park 1940 Gymnasium from 5:30 p.m. until 8:00 p.m.  This annual University of Arkansas Hope-Texarkana Foundation event benefits the Kids’ College program held each summer at the College.  Kids’ College is a three week program designed for kids who will be in the first through eighth grades in the fall.   The 2015 program served nearly 400 students from Hope and surrounding communities.  A portion of the funds will also benefit UAHT’s Prep Academy and the I-Serve programs, which have been in existence for four years, serving approximately 100 area students in grades 9-12.

BBB will bring back the best from each of the ten previous years to help celebrate the 10th Anniversary of this event.  This will include great food, live performances, and plenty of shopping.  The black and white attired evening will include live and silent auctions. Guests may self-park or take advantage of valet parking.

A big thank you to our sponsors of the event who help make it possible.
