Retired country singer Naomi Judd will speak at Horizon Goodwill Industries Golden Jubilee Gala at Fountainhead Country Club as part of the nonprofit agency's 50th anniversary celebration, said Greg Evans, manager of marketing and communications.

Tickets are not expected to be available until September and ticket prices had not been set yet for the Oct. 21 event, Evans said. To purchase tickets, people will need an invitation to the event.

To get on the invitation list, call Horizon Goodwill at 301-733-7330 and leave your name and address with the receptionist.

The evening is expected to include receptions at 6 p.m., including one for sponsors to get a chance to meet Judd, and dinner at 7 p.m., followed by Judd's speech, he said.

Horizon Goodwill provides disabled and disadvantaged people with job training opportunities and helps them find jobs, Evans said. Horizon Goodwill shops provide the agency with the funds to do that.
