Commissioners Announce 2014 Gala Entertainment

Layton, Utah, USA – July 2, 2014 /MarketersMedia/ –

Each year the Davis County Gala celebrates Davis County and the Davis Conference Center by providing top-notch entertainment to gala attendees. Past performers at the gala have included Peabo Bryson, The African Children’s Choir and Collin Raye. For this year’s October 9th event entertainment, the Davis County commissioners are pleased to announce Jim Brickman.

Commissioner Louenda Downs said, “We are thrilled to have Jim Brickman. He is an amazing musician and his music is well known and loved by our Gala crowd. I have always been a fan, and I am excited we were able to bring him here. He will be the perfect way to top off the evening!”

The annual Davis County Gala has three basic purposes. First, the Gala celebrates Davis County by awarding the “Heart of Davis” to an organization that has made a positive and significant impact on the community. This year’s award recipient is the Davis County Hospital. Second, the Gala seeks to entertain by bringing top-notch performers, such as Jim Brickman, to Davis County. Last, the Gala gives back to the community by selecting a worthy cause to support. Proceeds from this year’s “New York, New York” Gala event will benefit Utah Foster Care.
