The annual Pinal 40 Gala brought comedian Larry the Cable Guy, former Diamondback Luis Gonzalez and artist Randall Hedden to Harrah’s Ak-Chin Casino Events Center Saturday for dinner and entertainment to help fund local youth programs and agricultural scholarships in Pinal County. Comedian Mark Cordes hosted the evening, which say Hedden do on-the-spot art, including a painting of Gonzalez that was auctioned off. Larry the Cable Guy was the spotlight entertainment. Live and silent auctions included high-end items like skydiving trips, baseball tickets, electronics, signed jerseys and more.
