“I really can’t believe it,” Kami May, director of marketing and community relations for the United Way, said. “We’re so excited and it just shows how excited the community is about having this event on the bridge.”

By selling out the event, May said each United Way partner agency will receive $1,000.

“None of that money goes to the United Way,” May said. “All of it will go to our partner agencies.”

Those who purchased tickets to the event, which begins at 6 p.m., will have the opportunity to dine from several local restaurants while enjoying the gorgeous view overlooking the Mississippi River.

The event will also feature local artist Claiborne Cooksey, who will be painting scenes from the evening, and one lucky person will take the artwork home as a complimentary door prize.

A professional photographer will also be at the event to capture the night, while musical selections from Ralph Miller, Mike McCann and Eddy Cresap will add to the atmosphere.

Ameristar Casino will be providing a shuttle service for those who park at the top of the hill (Old Delta Point).

May said tickets for next year’s event will go on sale Aug. 1, 2019.
