After monthly meetings which began last November, and many hours of work by members of the committee between meetings, a successful OKC event is now in the hands of each of us as members of The Native Sons and Daughters of Greater Kansas City.
We are honored to present this year's award to George Brett. His acceptance of the award and the assistance of the Kansas City Royals staff will make this year’s event a rival of the past two years’ events at the Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts.
The Royals have responded to the committee's calls and joined us as the Diamond Sponsor of the event. And, once again this year, the Muriel McBrien Kauffman Foundation has graciously supported us as the Platinum Sponsor. Others in the community and among the NSDKC membership have responded with the purchase of tables and tickets. Still others have purchased ads in the event program and donated items for the Silent Auction.
What do we still need? You.
The annual Outstanding Kansas Citian award and dinner is the only fundraiser held each year to support the production and placement of historic markers, cash awards to students participating in the National History Day program in Kansas and Missouri, the archiving and preservation of historic documents, and assisting museums and historic sites throughout the metropolitan area.
On November 6, each member of The Native Sons and Daughters of Greater Kansas City will have the opportunity to support the mission of our organization --- the historic preservation of the unique and rich heritage of the greater Kansas City area. We need your help to make this a success.
If you can attend, please purchase a ticket today . . . or better yet, purchase a table and bring your friends. If you can't join us on November 6, please consider purchasing an ad in the event program or providing an item for the silent auction. Your contribution to this event will preserve and protect the history of the Kansas City area for many generations to come.
