EVENT UPDATE: At Make-A-Wish, the health and safety of our community, including our wish families, corporate partners and donors, volunteers and employees, is our priority. Given public health concerns with COVID-19, the Make-A-Wish Missouri & Kansas staff and Board have made the difficult decision to postpone the 2020 Bubble Ball for Wishes Sake from September 18, 2020 to March 5, 2021.
This unique event is a way for us to celebrate not only our mission and wish children, but also the support of our partners, community leaders, local restaurants, artists and sponsors. We are extremely appreciative of the understanding and support we have received during this time of crisis and we remain committed to hosting this event in March, and to fulfilling our vision of granting the wish of every eligible child fighting a critical illness.
On behalf of all of the Make-A-Wish Missouri & Kansas staff, Board and the wish kids we serve, thank you for your patience as we continue to plan our Bubble Ball for Wishes Sake event. We look forward to seeing you in March at the Abbott Event Space!

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.
This signature Kansas City event will sell out quickly! Contact Emily Fundermann at email@example.com or 913-449-3067 to discuss partnership opportunities.
