Bolo Bash Luncheon – Susan Lucci


Baptist Health Foundation’s annual Bolo Bash Luncheon is one of the state’s premier fundraising events. And it continues to be one of the most sought-after affairs of the year.

Each year, the luncheon raises funds for worthy causes throughout the community, while presenting guests with world-class, nationally recognized entertainers and guest speakers.

This year’s Bolo Bash Luncheon will feature arguably the most famous woman in daytime television history: Susan Lucci. For decades, Lucci wowed audiences as Erica Kane on ABC-TV’s All My Children, having taken home the Emmy Award in 1999 for “Best Actress.” According to TV Guide, Lucci is “unequivocally the most famous soap opera character in the history of daytime TV.”

Decades worth of success have given Lucci the unique opportunity to give back to society at every turn. She has partnered with a number of worthy causes over the years, lending her name, time and dollars to helping those in need.

“How could you not give back?” Lucci asks. “I feel so blessed, so lucky. I know these words get thrown around a lot. But I mean them so sincerely, and I feel so blessed. Especially the children’s charities, they touch me. When I see that there’s something I’m able to say yes to and can contribute, I do my best to… There are many ways people can participate in helping a charity. If I can do it, I will do it.”

On March 28, Lucci will lock arms with the Baptist Health Foundation to help raise money for Healthy & Active Youth.

Far too many Arkansans struggle with obesity, and many bad health habits are developed at a young age. Lucci understands the importance of embracing a healthy lifestyle at an early in life. She takes pride in her healthy lifestyle, and promotes use of her Pilates Pro Chair when given the opportunity.

Developing healthy habits at a young age is critical, she explains. “It contributes to a child’s health and their wellbeing. The sooner the better… The sooner someone can get on the right track, with healthy minds, bodies and spirits as they grow up, it can only have a positive effect on them and society.”

This year’s Bolo Bash Luncheon will be held on March 28, at the J.A. Gilbreath Conference Center of Baptist Health Medical Center in Little Rock. The event will be preceded by a ticketed reception the night of March 27. Tickets for both events can be found here.
