This ball was created and designed to salute our history makers and trailblazers in Manatee County for their work and service in the category of Healthcare, Politics, Military, Athletics and Business.

We are proud to honor the 2014 History Makers and Trailblazers:

Dr. Clifford Ward – Healthcare
Mr. Clarence Love – Politics
Mr. Steve Lewis – Military (Buffalo Soldier)
Mr. Leon Harris – Athletics (Negro Baseball League)
Westside Funeral Home – Business

Come celebrate with us in paying tribute to our History Makers and Trailblazers.  We will also be hosting the Bay City Steppers performing Chicago Style Stepping for our entertainment and DJ Thomas. Tickets are $30.
