COLUMBIA — Retiring U.S. Sen. Kit Bond won't escape public service completely unscathed before he leaves Washington after 24 years.
The Republican senator and former Missouri governor will be the target of a July 24 celebrity roast in Columbia. Among those scheduled to toss jabs at Bond are former Missouri Congressman Kenny Hulshof, one-time Bond staff member Annie Presley and University of Missouri agriculture dean Tom Payne.
Tickets cost $100 and benefit the mid-Missouri chapter of the Alzheimer's Association. Former state lawmaker Joe Moseley, a Democrat, will serve as master of ceremonies.
