Join us on Friday, November 8 at KVC’s Gala at the Abbott. You’ll bask in the lights, sights and sounds of another world as Havana meets Kansas City’s Crossroads District. Vibrant art, eclectic dishes, cigar rolling, pulsating live music from Lost Wax, live painting by local artist Michael Savage, and more fun surprises will take center stage at what will be a celebration of the senses! All funds raised go toward helping children and families in need. Learn about sponsorship opportunities.

How does my Gala ticket or donation help children? KVC Health Systems is a nonprofit organization that strengthens families, prevents child abuse and neglect, and provides in-home family support, foster care, adoption, behavioral health, and children’s psychiatric hospitals. While state reimbursements cover basic needs, private funds are needed to fill critical gaps and enhance the lives of children and families. The KVC Gala is 100% underwritten by corporate sponsors and other private donations; thank you for your generous support! Read how proceeds from past events have helped children.
