A fundraiser to benefit Hawk's Nest Inclusive Playground

Oct 4-sponsors

Our first ever gala 

The Raymore Community Foundation presents our first ever gala to benefit the Hawk's Nest inclusive playground! We invite you to join us for an evening to remember at this vintage circus themed event. Our fundraising goal for the night is to raise a minimum amount of $20,000 in order to purchase the custom-designed Treehouse playground piece. While it is a small amount considering the playground's total price tag of nearly $800,000, each dollar gets us closer to closing the gap and purchasing all of the play equipment in order to create a space for children of all abilities to experience the happiness of playing with friends. This prestigious event will take place on Saturday, October 26, 2019 at Centerview event space in Raymore.

The Vintage Circus Gala will include:

  • Gourmet Dinner and Dessert
  • Silent Auction & Live Quarter Auction
  • Wine Pull
  • Live Painting Demonstration
  • Cash Bar
  • Take-home gifts for each guest

Tickets for the gala are available for purchase for $60 each. 

Contact Melissa Harmer at 816-892-3002 or to purchase tickets for this fantastic cause!

We want you! Sponsorship opportunities are still available.

We would like to invite your business or organization to participate in the Vintage Circus Gala as a sponsor. This opportunity allows your company to show your support for social responsibility and this amazing community while enhancing your marketing profile to an extraordinary audience. The gala will be an evening to remember as we raise funds for a playground for all that promotes understanding, respect and a real sense of community.
