The Kansas City Country Club – CRA 100th Anniversary

On May 12th, a luncheon was held at The Kansas City Country Club in celebration of the CRA 100th Anniversary. Members of Mercy Auxiliary, the predecessor of the Children’s Relief Association, began donating their time, talents, and funds to Children’s Mercy Hospital in 1922. Doe Loftus served as the CRA 100th Anniversary chairman, and Julie Foster and Page Reed were the event co-chairmen. Proceeds – more than double the initial goal! – will benefit mental health services at Children’s Mercy.  

2021-2022 CRA Board Members: (Front row) Heather Nana, Julie Jurden, Becky Herring, Paige Bennish, and Pam Olander, president (back row) Amy Sullivan, president-elect; Jenn Johnson, and Betsy Fountain
