Kansas City CARE Clinic – Bloom Speaks Easy

April 12th was the date for the Kansas City CARE Clinic’s Bloom Speaks Easy in the West Bottoms. Amy McAnarney and David Hunt were the honorary chairmen, and Kate McKinney, Kurt Knapstein and Emily and Matt Baldwin were the co-chairmen. Guests donned their best 1920’s attire and knocked on a secret door to step back in time. The event featured fabulous fare from Delish! and entertainment from Mark Lowrey and the New Jazz Order Big Band.
