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.
