All For Benny Gala another success for Clinton County Community Foundation

Posted September 19, 2018 at 8:44 am

Growing to seeing well over 100 people coming together under the lights Saturday night, the All For Benny Gala, hosted by the Clinton County Community Foundation, was a tremendous success in just it’s second year.

Designed as a venue to both raise awareness of the Foundation itself as well as to benefit the organization’s current major project, the construction of a downtown Farmer’s Market facility, the Gala provided those attending with a night of outdoor dining and fellowship.

U.S. Congressman James Comer, a former Kentucky Agriculture Commissioner, was the Gala guest speaker.
