Celebrating Our 50th Anniversary

We are moving forward with our celebration of Benton & Associates, Inc.’s 50th anniversary. During these trying times, we have coordinated a plan to safely socialize and celebrate while social distancing. Please check in upon arriving. We’ll share with you our plan so that you may take a quick walk-through of our clean office and proceed to the tents outside.

Everyone will then be able to enjoy great food (served by food professionals) as well as some live music. Be sure to pick up a 50th Anniversary memento.

Please join us if you can, Your B&A Friends
