Justin Moore to perform at October banquet

The Boys & Girls Clubs of Saline County has landed a major country western music star as headliner for the club's annual "Night to be Great" banquet.

Justin Moore will be the main headliner for the club's event.

The banquet is a major fundraising event for the organization and is set for Thursday, Oct. 16, at the Benton Event Center.

Emmy Rogers, director of development for the Boys & Girls Clubs of Saline County says a huge crowd is expected, but pointed out that tables and tickets will not be available to purchase until 8 a.m. on Aug. 1.

The award was the first for Moore after six years of hit singles, albums and concerts.
