Arkansas native and actress/director Joey Lauren Adams will be the keynote speaker at the 31st annual Baptist Health Bolo Bash Luncheon on Wednesday, April 15. 

Adams has starred in a number of films such as “Dazed and Confused,” “Big Daddy” and “The Break Up,” and received a Golden Globe nomination for her role in “Chasing Amy.” She's also appeared in “United States of Tara” and “Still the King,” and wrote and directed her debut film “Come Early Morning” starring Ashley Judd.

The luncheon includes a silent auction, photos and lunch beginning at 11 a.m. in the J.A. Gilbreath Conference Center at Baptist Health Medical Center-Little Rock. 

The Bolo Bash is Baptist Health's largest fundraising event, raising millions to better the care of Arkansans since its origins in 1989. Proceeds from this year's event will go toward the purchase of a new Mobile Health Unit to expand health care access in areas of need around the state. It will provide free screening, education, coaching and health navigation services to residents in under-served communities. 

If you’re interested in meeting Adams, mark your calendar for a Meet & Greet at the home of Lee and Greg Hatcher on Tuesday, April 14.
