You say potato and I say potahto. Actually, we both say potato. But gala, there's a word I've actually heard pronounced two equally valid ways. It's the carmel/caramel of parties. I tend to go with "gah-la" but both Kirk and our in-studio Liz Zimmerman Waldman from Boys and Girls Club agreed that "gay-la" is the preferred form. Coincidentally, Gala is also a variety of potatoes. Or potahtoes. Let's call the whole thing off.
Liz joined us to talk about the Boys and Girls Club Annual Gala, sponsored by WOC and iHeartMedia - Quad Cities, happening on Saturday, January 26th at the Waterfront Convention Center in Bettendorf. They'll have a cocktail hour, silent auction, dinner and dancing. We'll have tickets (a $200 value) to give away during the History Quiz at 8:16 each morning this week.
