Supporting Cancer Care and Our Community
For the past seven years, this soiree under the stars has brought in stellar talent and food to its home at the Kansas Speedway — and has helped raise $3.3 million to enhance cancer care for patients in our community.
In 2008, Burns & McDonnell's chairman and CEO Greg Graves and his wife, Deanna, chaired the event and helped raise more than $1 million. Proceeds from 2009 will expand treatment for blood and marrow transplant patients and establish an appearance center to help survivors feel whole again.
Burns & McDonnell will continue to support the University of Kansas Hospital and its goal to bring a national cancer institute designation to the state of Kansas.
