New Year’s Eve benefit slated
The Kansas City Friends for Make-A-Wish will be hosting a New Year's Eve gala at 7 p.m. Dec. 31 at the Downtown Marriott, 200 W. 12th St., Kansas City, Mo.
Proceeds from the event will be used to grant wishes to children ages 2 to 18 from the Kansas City area who have been diagnosed with life-threatening illnesses.
"We are looking forward to granting more wishes and building awareness at this year's first New Year's Eve dinner, dancing and silent auction," said Angela Evangelidis, who chairs the KC Friends of Make-A-Wish group.
Tickets to the black tie-optional event are $150 per person. Tickets are available at wishkc.org or by calling (800) 566-9474 in Kansas.
