Actress, director and producer Linda Gray, best known for her portrayal of Sue Ellen Ewing on "Dallas," was the special guest and featured speaker at the milestone 30th annual Bolo Bash event. At the reception, Millie Ward opened her home to host the annual VIP kickoff party, which served as a meet-and-greet with Linda Gray, before the next day's luncheon at the J.A. Gilbreath Conference Center. As part of Baptist Health Foundation's largest fundraising event, this year's event benefited Baptist Health’s nursing initiatives, including scholarships for students at Baptist Health College-Little Rock.
