Patty and Jim Cownie will be
presented the Bravo Award during the eighth annual Bravo Greater Des
Moines Awards Gala on Feb. 2 at Hy-Vee Hall in downtown Des Moines. The Bravo
Award recognizes a company, individual, or family that has made a significant
contribution to arts and culture in Greater Des Moines. The Cownies
"epitomize the dedication and commitment it takes to be true leaders for
change," said Sharon Krause, Bravo Greater Des Moines' board president.
The theme of this year's gala is "It StARTS with You" and will
feature the Ken Arlen Orchestra as well as performances and artistic works by
Des Moines-area organizations and artists. Reservations can be made by
contacting Kendra Daly at (515) 537-2001 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
