Foundation Christian Academy (FCA) is hosting its 2nd Annual Benefit Dinner on Tuesday May 17th, 2011 at the Sloan Convention Center. GLI and Nancy Grimes are avid supporters of the community. Nancy Grimes has been a board member for Foundation Christian Academy for a number of years. Guest speaker for the event is former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee. GLI/Grimes Legal, Inc. is one of the sponsors for the event.
Mike Huckabee is the host of the number one rated weekend hit “HUCKABEE” on the Fox News Channel and is heard three times daily on ABC Radio Network’s “Huckabee Report,” one of the nation’s fastest growing radio programs. An author of six books, his most recent work, “Do the Right Thing,” spent its first seven weeks of release in the top ten of the New York Times Bestseller list.
Huckabee was sworn into the governor’s office in July of 1996 and became one of the country’s youngest governors. He was later elected to two full terms in 1998 and 2002 attracting the largest percentage of the vote ever received by a Republican gubernatorial nominee in Arkansas. Prior to his service as governor, he had been elected lieutenant governor in a 1993 special election and was elected to a full four-year term in 1994.
Huckabee is an avid musician and plays bass guitar in his rock-n-roll band, Capitol Offense. The band has opened for artists such as Willie Nelson and the Charlie Daniels Band, and has played the House of Blues in New Orleans and for two presidential inauguration balls. He and house band, “The Little Rockers,” are featured each week in the musical segment of his Fox News Channel program. His hobbies also include hunting and fishing. He was named one of the 25 most influential people for conservation by Outdoor Life magazine and was previously American Sportfishing Association’s Man of the Year.
He and wife, Janet, live in North Little Rock. They have three grown children: John Mark, David and Sarah.
