You brought more friends, you made more gifts, you raised more money for KVC at the Gala than ever before. Thank you!

On Saturday, November 21, over 600 guests enjoyed a night of fun and fundraising at the 2015 Gala on Fire, an event that benefits children and families served by KVC. This was the second year the event was held at the Historic Firestone Building in downtown Kansas City, MO. Due to the generosity of so many, the event raised a record-breaking amount of more than $264,000!  

Thank you to Bonne Illig, Kim Stevens, Debbie Douville, Lenise Ward, Ashlee Bressel, Lauren Hunt & Jenni Howard of VanBrock for serving as our Gala chairs for the second year in a row. We would also like to thank all of our generous volunteers, corporate sponsors, donors and party-goers for making this year’s Gala a huge success. We look forward to seeing all of you at The Gala again next year on Friday, November 18, 2016!
