In addition to being a lot of fun, this is a hugely important event for us.

Complimentary parking is provided in the parking garage of the Sheraton Hotel. Registration and coffee service begin at 7:00. As you arrive, enjoy musical entertainment from students of St. Teresa's Academy and Rockhurst High School. Rumor has it Cat and Fish from The Coterie's upcoming production of "Dr. Seuss' The Cat in the Hat" will be making a special appearance. Come join the party, and do a good deed.
