Join us for the 4th Annual Bubble Ball for Wishes Sake!
This signature event will be held at The Abbott in the Crossroads Arts District of Downtown Kansas City to bring awareness to the extraordinary power of hope and healing that a wish come true can deliver for children battling critical illnesses.
The annual event will begin with hors d’oeuvres and cocktails before featuring a runway show and art gallery exhibit, designed by local artists and companies using bubble wrap. Pieces are inspired by local Kansas City wish kids’ favorite movies. This one-of-a-kind event will also feature Kansas City wish kids, live music, interactive voting on bubble wrap art, silent and live auction, food stations, and much more – all to raise vital funds for wishes granted by the Make-A-Wish Missouri & Kansas chapter. This event is co-chaired by Jeff Eden from DEG Digital and Eric Kruger from Team Drive Away.
It is estimated that each year nearly 600 children qualify for a wish from Make-A-Wish Missouri & Kansas. The chapter hopes to take a step closer to their vision of granting the wish of every eligible child with this year’s event goal of funding an additional 50 wishes.
“The Bubble Ball for Wishes Sake event has raised just over $800,000 since its inception in 2017, helping to grant more than 80 wishes for local kids battling critical illnesses. The support the Kansas City community has given to our local chapter through the years has been outstanding. We are thrilled to again host this exclusive event for the children we serve,” said Schmidt.
