33rd Annual Bolo Bash Reception & Luncheon

Fashion designer Jude Connally Zimmerman, founder and creator of the self-titled women’s lifestyle brand Jude Connally, will headline the 32nd annual Bolo Bash Reception and Luncheon, October 11 and October 12. 

After two years, the event returns to its traditional format.

The intimate reception with Jude Connally Zimmerman is sponsored by Roller Funeral Home and hosted by Greg and Lee Hatcher at their home. 

This year’s Luncheon, presented by Dillard’s, is set to feature a fashion show and conversation with Zimmerman that is moderated by Entertainment Tonight host Kevin Frazier as well as the presentation of the inaugural Power of Purpose Award to Greg Hatcher.

The event will also include a menu prepared by locally known Chef Donnie Ferneau, a silent auction with a vast selection of merchandise from Dillard’s and eight international and domestic trips of a lifetime.

Raised in up-state New York, Zimmerman attended The Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City. After two decades of working with some of the most respected names in the fashion industry and raising a family, Zimmerman launched her own brand. The Jude Connally collection, known for its vibrant prints and effortless styles, can now be found nationwide in over 350 specialty stores as well as Dillard’s stores in the southeast.

This year’s Luncheon host, Frazier, has interviewed some of Hollywood’s biggest stars since joining Entertainment Tonight as a co-host in 2014. He has won five Emmy Awards and has hosted numerous shows and events including the Emmy-nominated Game Changers with Kevin Frazier.

Proceeds from this year’s Bolo Bash Luncheon will be used to renovate and expand Baptist Health’s maternal and infant areas, including NICU, and strengthen the health care system’s ability to care for more women and children in Arkansas.
