The 13th Annual BSA Extravaganza
Over 350 mid-state business leaders attended the 13th Annual BSA Extravaganza, held November 21st at LP Field’s Westside Stadium Club. This sports facility was transformed into an elegant setting for a gala event featuring a delicious cocktail supper, live music and fabulous live and silent auctions. The 2013 theme was “Soaring with Eagles” which generated over $60,000 in support of Scouting. The auction boasted over 250 items including trips to Jackson Hole, Wyoming, Silverthorn, Colorado, golf at Chattanooga’s Honors Course, private dinners by The Sunset Grill and Capers Catering and many other unique items.
