Rose Brooks Center – Cabaret

Vanessa Williams was the featured performer at the 31st Anniversary Cabaret. She dazzled the audience with her voice and wit. The event, a benefit for Rose Brooks Center, was held on February 25th at the Sheraton Kansas City Hotel at Crown Center. More than $600,000 was raised, and the funds will be used to end violence in the lives of thousands of families and pets. Jennie Clarke, Jill Opelka Greenfield and Phil Greenfield served as co-chairmen.
