Lyric Opera Circle – Lyric Opera Ball

April 13th is the date for Lyric Opera Circle’s Lyric Opera Ball, “For the Love of Opera,” to be held at the Sheraton Kansas City Hotel at Crown Center. Marilyn and Kenneth Hager are the honorary chairmen, and Pamela Bruce and Barbara Haviland are serving as the co-chairmen. The gala will feature a program of beloved opera melodies by acclaimed tenor Ben Gulley, a silent auction, a gourmet dinner, and dancing into the night. A Benefactors’ Party will be hosted by Jeanne and Joe Brandmeyer at their beautiful home. The Lyric Opera Ball has raised more than $15 million since 1987.
