Captain Sandy Yawn

Captain Sandy Yawn of Bravo’s Below Deck Mediterranean is set to be the keynote speaker for Wolfe Street Foundation’s Red Carpet Gala this year, of which AY Media Group properties AY About You and Arkansas Mental Health Guide are the presenting sponsors.


Wolfe Street Foundation is an Arkansas nonprofit dedicated to alcoholism and drug addiction recovery, and its annual Red Carpet Gala is one of its largest fundraising events. Due to the ongoing pandemic, the event will be virtual this year, being held on April 29 at 7 p.m. Admission is free, but the foundation is gratefully accepting $100 donations for virtual tickets, which includes a charcuterie board for two courtesy of Heritage Catering and a “swag bag,” according to a recent news release.


“In addition to a keynote speaker, the gala will include an online auction. Featured items include a fabulous getaway to a gorgeous Montana lodge donated by Buck and Angela Thompson and a stunning piece of jewelry courtesy of Sissy’s Log Cabin. There will be musical guests including Townsend, Jared Blake from NBC’s The Voice and Arkansas native and runner-up on the most recent season of NBC’s The Voice, Jim Ranger,” the foundation said in the release.


More information about the event and the mission of the foundation can be found on its website.
