Toasting & Roasting Nolan Richardson

Guest blog by Big Brothers Big Sisters
of Central Arkansas

Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Arkansas (BBBSCA) is pleased to honor Nolan Richardson at the 40th Annual Original Toast & Roast event. We select an individual each year to be recognized and toasted & roasted by members of the community. This year is especially exciting as we honor former Arkansas Razorback Basketball Head Coach Nolan Richardson on the 20th anniversary of the year he led the Razorbacks to their first National Championship title.


Richardson will be roasted by current Razorback Head Basketball Coach Mike Anderson; Todd Day, former Arkansas Razorback and NBA player; and Pat Bradley, former Arkansas Razorback and current sports radio talk show host.

Toast & Roast is Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Arkansas’ largest fundraiser and helps fulfill our organization’s mission to provide more children with a mentor in their lives. The event will take place Thursday, Aug. 21 at Embassy Suites. A reception will begin at 6 p.m. before the dinner and program at 7.

Thank you to our current sponsors for the 40th Annual Toast & Roast: 103.7 The Buzz, AY Magazine, Windstream, Heartland Renaissance Fund, Magna IV, Maple Leaf Canvas & Awning, Wright Lindsey & Jennings and Simmons First.
