The 2020 Creating Futures Gala features nationally-known speaker and television host Mike Huckabee. Charles W. Herbster has made this exciting evening possible by hosting Mr. Huckabee’s attendance at the Gala.

The keynote speaker, Mike Huckabee, is a former Governor of Arkansas, past presidential candidate, and a best-selling author. He hosts his own program on TBN, and frequently appears as a FOX News contributor. Governor Huckabee is married to Janet, and both share a love for Christian education. The Huckabees have 3 children, and 6 grandchildren.

Charles W. Herbster is the owner of Carico Farms Inc., which traces its roots back to the 1800’s. He currently serves as chairman of the Agricultural and Rural Advisory Committee for President Donald J. Trump. Mr. Herbster is also the owner of five other national companies, and has been actively involved in the National Day of Prayer movement for over 15 years.

Along with being host of The Drive Home on Boomer Radio, he is a Financial Advisor and Vice President at Wealth Partners, a Wealth Advisory Practice of Ameriprise Financial. Jack and his wife Karen raised their three daughters and now enjoy life as “Nana and Papa.”
