Friends and supporters of CASA had a SWANKY time at our annual auction on Friday, September 14th. The Hops & Barley Ball - With A Mod Twist was held at the 1900 Building, a new venue for the event. We welcomed over 240 guests and brought together numerous corporate partners who helped to underwrite the evening, including Performance Contracting Group as presenting sponsor.
Our guests enjoyed a silent auction, retro-inspired dining stations, signature libations, a photo booth, and a terrific performance by jazz band A La Mode! The silent auction also included a “twist”; first bidders received a commemorative rocks glass with a custom Hops and Barley logo and bidders who bid on a special “green line” were entered to win a Plaza Lights helicopter tour. Guests were also able to enter a drawing to win an impressive bar starter set which included personal bartending services.
"The change of venue and fresh take on this annual event really brought about the fun and energy," says Alyssa Perbeck, CASA's Development Director. "We truly enjoy hosting this event for our volunteers, friends and supporters, who every day make an impact for the children we together serve."
With sponsorships, the event raised more than $117,000 to support CASA advocacy programs for abused and neglected children which will directly benefit CASA kids and the continuation of ongoing programming. The organization would like to thank presenting sponsor Performance Contracting Group, as well as lead sponsors Smith & Loveless Inc., Lockton, and the Greater Kansas City Alumnae Chapter of Kappa Alpha Theta. Thanks also to the many other corporate partners and friends for success of the evening.
