  • 2024 Event Dollars

    Based on the net amount raised by a single event, there is an opportunity for your organization to be listed. To ensure accuracy, we need to confirm the exact net and gross amounts your event(s) raised. Only net dollars raised will be published, and those proceeds should benefit our metro area counties: Cass, Clay, Jackson, Johnson, Leavenworth, Platte, Ray, and Wyandotte.
