Catholic Charities of Northeast Kansas – 44th Annual Snow Ball

The 44th Annual Snow Ball was held on January 20th at the Overland Park Convention Center. The event drew more than 2,000 guests, now that’s a blizzard of support! Early in the evening, Snow Ball Presidents Maureen and Mike Bukaty thanked partygoers for their dedication and generosity. Amid this glow of appreciation, everyone enjoyed a festive formal dinner, followed by dancing to the music of Lost Wax. Proceeds from the event were earmarked for Catholic Charities of Northeast Kansas, which provides help to those in need through its seven emergency assistance centers, eight food pantries and more than 20 programs and services for people of all faiths and all ages.
