kansas city on the rise


Heidi Mikhail ~ The Bacchus Foundation, Kansas City’s oldest and largest philanthropic organization for young professionals, will host its 51st annual Bacchus Ball on Saturday, February 18th at the Rotunda in Town Pavilion. The theme of the 2006 ball is “Kansas City on the Rise”. The event will celebrate Kansas City’s revitalization by highlighting the growth of the downtown districts and the surrounding metropolitan area.

Proceeds from the Bacchus Ball “Kansas City on the Rise” will benefit The Children’s SPOT at St. Luke’s Hospital. The Bacchus Foundation has pledged a commitment to fundraise for a sensory development room in The Children’s SPOT new building.

“Kansas City is growing at an unprecedented pace,” said Bacchus President Kevin Farrell. “In addition to helping our beneficiary, the Foundation is also bringing young professionals to downtown venues like the Crossroads District, Town Pavilion, and Union Station, which ultimately helps Kansas City grow.”

The ball begins at 7:00pm with dinner provided by Pierpont’s and the Hereford House, two of the city’s most recognized restaurants. Attendees will have the chance to bid on premium items and packages provided by local businesses in a silent auction until 10:30pm and local band, The Clique, will entertain throughout the evening.

A Patron’s Party will be hosted in the Cordish Offices on the Pavilion’s 30th floor from 6:30pm to 8:00pm. Patrons attending will have the privilege of viewing Kansas City’s most current reconstruction sites including the H&R Block building, the Sprint Center, and the forthcoming Kansas City Live district. This VIP event will entertain with Kansas City jazz music, appetizers, and an open bar.
