There was no alchemy involved as silver turned to gold for Arkansas Children's Northwest. The 24th annual Will Golf 4 Kids golf tournament and the 10th annual Color of Hope Gala Aug. 4 raised $1.1 million for the children's hospital. Gala guests' attire and room decor reflected silver, the 2017 color of hope, at the benefit at the John Q. Hammons Center in Rogers.
