“I’m looking for some insight into what type of jobs are available right now,” Noah Filbert, a Junior from Olathe West High School, exclaimed. “I’m currently looking for law enforcement and firefighting – anything that can help people.” Noah went on to say, “I really enjoyed the firefighter booth and police officer booth; all of the nursing booths are really cool where you can try out different stuff – it’s really awesome!”

Maddie Wagner, a Junior from Olathe West High School, aspires to be a dental hygienist. “I want to go to K State or Johnson County and do a dental hygienist program there!” With booths from both schools represented at the Career Expo, it was the perfect opportunity for Maddie to explore the possibilities of her future career in dental hygiene!

Whether students were looking for internships, full-time jobs, or just an opportunity to work on their networking skills, the event had something for everyone. Through the Expo, students experienced the chance to chat with recruiters from each organization and learn more about opportunities after graduation – including secondary education, technology opportunities, government vocations and more!

Ball Conference Center Dombrowski Wedding

Wedding Spotlight: Ben & Bethanie Dombrowski

Ball Conference Center hosted a picture-perfect wedding ceremony and reception celebrating Ben & Bethanie Dombrowski’s happily ever after on Saturday, November 11th, 2017! The brisk Fall weather was no bother to wedding guests as the newlyweds warmed hearts with beautiful wedding vows and happy tears.

Ben & Bethanie’s love story originated at Brickyard, where they dated for four years before Ben got down on one knee during Thanksgiving, surrounded by family. The couple have come full circle to tie the knot in November, bringing families together again.

The wedding ceremony was held in one half of the ballroom, beautifully decorated in shades of royal blue and white. Flickering candles glimmered along the aisle, leading up to an arbor draped in tulle and soft string lighting. After saying their “I do’s,” the ballroom was opened up to accommodate the reception space. Through the transition, guests enjoyed the photo booth, grazed the candy and snack tables, and sipped cocktails from the bar.

Entering the reception space, tables were elegantly dressed in royal blue hues, warm candles and vintage lanterns, while rustic accents adorned the couple’s table. Guests were surrounded by many customized pieces, such as trendy chalkboard art, that highlighted elements of the Dombrowski’s relationship. Ben & Bethanie’s love for each other shone bright as they celebrated their vows with family and friends!

Are you dreaming about the perfect wedding venue without the hassle of dozens of decisions? Then look no further – book your dream wedding at Ball Conference Center today! Planning will be a breeze, and your special day will be filled with wedding bliss – not unintended hurdles or compromises.

Michael at Ball Conference Center would love to show you around and talk to you about all that Ball has to offer! For more information, give Michael a call at (913) 322-4980. We look forward to showing you around and helping you create the wedding of your dreams!

Ball Hosts the Hillcrest of Kansas Infinite Possibilities Gala!

Kansas Hillcrest supporters gathered at Ball Conference Center last weekend, November 4th, for the Hillcrest of Kansas 12th Annual Infinite Possibilities Gala event! Guests enjoyed an evening of fine food and drink with opportunities to support the Kansas Hillcrest Transitional Housing. Gala-goers bid on items at the silent and live auction to help end homelessness for Johnson and Wyandotte County youth, children, and families.

The Infinite Possibilities Gala is the Hillcrest Transitional Housing of Kansas’ annual fundraising event, where proceeds help offer homeless families, singles and youths a disciplined education program within a caring, supportive environment. In 2016, Hillcrest benefited from 3,599 volunteer hours with help from hundreds of volunteers and residents with maintenance, the Community Garden, grounds keeping, painting, cleaning, etc. Thus far, Hillcrest has provided 15,853 bed nights and 55,456 meals. With their help, they saw 50 family units and 11 youths graduate into self-sufficiency last year.

Some of the items being auctioned off included a set of vintage furniture, various wine gift baskets, Chiefs and Royals sports memorabilia, a Lake of the Ozarks Weekend Getaway, and even a 10-month old shepherd mix puppy – complete with food bowls, dog food and training! There was truly something for everyone!

The Hillcrest of Kansas Infinite Possibilities Gala truly highlighted the versatility of the Ball Conference Center ballroom and surrounding space! With the use of the Ballroom, Executive Boardroom, and Mabee Classrom, Ball Conference Center can be transformed to cater to any type of event.

For more information, call Michael Nicoski at Ball Conference Center at (913) 322-4980. We look forward to showing you around!
