Get Schooled

Many thanks to all who joined us for Get Schooled: Playing Hooky!

Our Get Schooled: Playing Hooky fundraiser was a big success! We’re grateful to all the sponsors, donors, community partners, party hosts and volunteers who were instrumental in helping us exceed our fundraising goal. Thank you! 

Special thanks to: our presenting sponsor Burns & McDonnell; event co-chairs Mark and D’ette Swanson, and David and Lisa Lowe; the event planning committee; virtual emcees Haley Harrison and Len Jennings of KMBC 9 News; and the Friends of Lead to Read KC. This event is critical to our mission.
