Get Schooled: Get in the Game

Our fourth-annual Get Schooled fundraising event was a big success! Many thanks to all the donors, sponsors, event partners, attendees and volunteers who helped “knock it out of the park”! We are so grateful for the support of the Kansas City community.  

It was a wonderful evening! Check out the awesome party pics in our photo gallery

Special thanks to all our generous sponsors; event chairs Katherine Bruner, Thalia Cherry, Mary O’Connor and Carolyn Watley; the event planning committee; emcees Haley Harrison and Len Jennings of KMBC 9 News; and special guests Darron Story and Emily Twyman-Brown. What a team!
