Our annual fundraising gala is almost here!! The event, called Guess the Grape, is set for Friday Dec 17th. It is a cocktail style party themed around a blind wine tasting. We will have several raffles/games and a live auction. This 300 person event is super fun, featuring great food and wine, live music, unique auction/raffle items, and a great cause. For the first time ever, this year we'll close out the night with a dance party.

Volunteers are a critical part of a successful event. You're needed to staff registration, sell raffle tickets, and help 'spot' the auction. We will be using mobile bidding software and offer training for all volunteers before the event.

About covid: After shifting to a virtual event last year, we are very excited to be back in person! All guests and volunteers must be vaccinated or have a recent negative test.

The KC Free Eye Clinic saves sight and improves lives for homeless and low income adults and families by providing free eye exams and glasses. Effective treatment for sight robbing eye diseases relies on early detection during a complete eye exam. Patients’ eyes light up when they receive their glasses and experience clear vision; they are able to see the faces of loved ones, and take in their surroundings. In addition to greatly enhancing quality of life, clear vision enables patients to pursue their dreams and achieve their potential.
