Cheers To Volunteers! – Karen Downing

Karen Downing is the auction chairman for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation’s Kansas City Shoot for the Cure event. She is known for her ability to procure highly desirable items for the auction – a great many of them! The total raised by the silent auction just keeps rising. In addition, Karen and her husband, Doug, recently sponsored a team for the sporting clay competition and a table for the dinner. Karen cares deeply and works hard, all the while keeping a positive attitude.
