Forward Janesville will be holding its annual Annual Dinner early next month.

Greg Hughes, NBC Sports Group’s Senior Vice President of Communications, will be the keynote speaker. The event will be open to members and nonmembers, with over 680 guests expected in total.

Hughes is a native of Janesville and will discuss his rise through the sports communication network. He has worked with well-known contemporary sport’s personalities such as Bob Costas, Chris Collingsworth, Al Michaels, Doug Collins, and Marv Albert.

The evening will begin with cocktails and music, and will then proceed with a sponsor reception. The dinner will be followed by Hughes’s remarks and a program honoring the organization’s leadership and accomplishments.

Each sponsor will submit their corporate logo design to be included in the event marketing materials, event signage, program, and promotional products such as each table’s bottles of wine. Promotional products will be given to some sponsors, and logos will be at the beverage stations and behind the photography stops.

Reservations have been available since late February for members and early March for nonmembers, so anyone interested should secure theirs as soon as possible.
