Thankful Thursday - BBB

Thankful Thursdays

Each Thursday we will showcase a feature of Southwest Arkansas that we are grateful for. Read more to see who’s in the spotlight for this week’s #ThankfulThursday.

 Today we are grateful for our friends at Beads, Bags, and Bangles, or more commonly known as “BBB.” BBB was started 14 years ago to raise funds for UAHT’s Kids’ College. Over the years it has grown into the College’s premiere fundraiser and we’re so thankful those funds still go to provide a fun summertime learning environment for 100s of kids in southwest Arkansas.

This year’s BBB theme is “Back Nine Par-Tee” so it’s natural that the event will be held at the Hope County Club at 3605 Patmos Road in Hope. There will be games, live music, great food from Amigo Juan’s, and of course, shopping!

There will also be a chances to win one of two Louis Vuitton purses and the John Hardy “Naga Legends” bracelet. The BBB committee is selling chances for the purses by using the popular square format. Each square is $35 and there are only 150 available. Squares can be purchased in advance or on the night of the Par-Tee. The bracelet will be raffled at the end of the evening. Raffle tickets are $5 each and can be purchase from any committee member or the night of the event. (Side “thank you” to Herndon-Fuqua Funeral Homes for donating the Louis Vuitton bags, and to Alexander’s Jewelers for donating the bracelet!)

Tickets are $35 and can be purchased in advance or at the door the night of the event.
