Catholic Charities Foundation of Northeast Kansas’ 39th Annual Snow Ball will be held on Saturday, Jan. 19. Proceeds from this black tie gala will help provide the most basic needs such as food and utilities to children and families in the community. Through the community’s support, the nearly $1.7 million raised by last year’s Snow Ball supported Catholic Charities programs, including: Emergency Assistance and Transitional Housing Program, in which 39,311 individuals benefitted from assistance, helping to feed and house families, and keep utilities functioning. Shalom House – a Wyandotte County homeless men’s shelter, where 150 men were sheltered and received 9,100 meals provided by dedicated volunteers last year. More than 1,750 guests will begin the evening with a cocktail reception and formal dinner, followed by dancing at the Sheraton Kansas City Hotel at Crown Center.
