The first-ever Gala for Good will be a special event to celebrate the incredible spirit of Goodwill showcasing the amazing achievements of our program participants, graduates, and community partners.
We invite you to be part of the Gala for Good and join us in making a lasting impact on our community. With your support, you will be helping to further Goodwill's mission of providing individuals with the opportunity to lead independent, successful, and productive lives.
You won't want to miss out on this spectacular evening! Indulge in a delectable dinner, sip on signature cocktails, beer, and wine. Take part in the excitement of both live and silent auctions, and then groove to the tunes of the Ultimate Prince Tribute band, which is renowned as one of the most sought-after bands in the region.
The Spirit of Goodwill Award
The Spirit of Goodwill Award is an accolade that recognizes an individual who has devoted their time, talent, and effort to advocate and promote Goodwill's mission of "Changing Lives through Education, Training, and Employment."
This year's first-ever Spirit of Goodwill Award recipient is Troy Wells, someone who is truly deserving of this recognition. As President and CEO of Baptist Health, he maintains an extremely busy schedule, but Troy has spent the past two years as Chairman of the Board at Goodwill Industries of Arkansas while serving a total of six years as a board member.
In honor of Troy, you can become a “Friend of Troy Wells”' and have your name listed on the website and in the event program by donating in his honor.

Virtual Team Fundraising
From now until October 6, Gala for Good will kick off a virtual team fundraising contest leading up to the event where anyone can create an online fundraising team to compete for trophies and tickets to the event.
All Goodwill departments, stores, sponsors, and anyone outside of the organization can participate by creating their own fundraising team and encourage others to join and give.
We are honored to have Jay Chesshir, president & CEO of the Little Rock Regional Chamber, as our keynote speaker at the Gala for Good. We appreciate his partnership with Goodwill Industries of Arkansas as we work together to bolster the economy by providing the education and skills needed for individuals who deserve to thrive in the workforce.
THANK YOU TO OUR SPONSORS
