When:

Thursday, May 8, 2014, Time: 6:00 -9:00 PM

Where:

1901 NW Blue Parkway, Unity Village, MO - Click here for location map

Goals:

Since 1989, we have had the opportunity to grow and create educational programming to celebrate religious and cultural diversity in the Kansas City area. In these ever changing times, understanding people of different faith traditions and other backgrounds is necessity to create and maintain harmony in our community. Our goal for this year is to raise $40,000 so that we can expand these programs, increase the base of knowledge, deepen our relations, and to better know and be known. The Greater Kansas City Interfaith Council is committed to building the most welcoming community for all people.

Program:

While this a major fundraising event, you will have the opportunity to indulge your senses; enjoy the beautiful surroundings in the gardens, mouth-watering hors d’oeuvres, delicious desserts and refreshing beverages while feeding your spirit in rich, uplifting, inspiring and diverse dialogue with other guests centered around the theme The Uncommon Response: Inspiring the Sacred in All Things.

Awardees:

Bambi Shen will receive the Steve Jeffers Interfaith Leadership Award* for exemplifying Council values of fostering relationships with people of all faiths and backgrounds, and promoting a pluralistic vision of respect in our community.

The Lisa Barth Interfaith Chapel at Children's Mercy Hospital will receive the Table of Faiths Award for opening its doors to people in the community of all faiths or no faith who need a place to pray or have a quite space for reflection.

*Steve Jeffers was a Council director and loved by all. He passed away in 2008. He was instrumental in preparing a spiritual PDR titled The Essential Guide to Religious Traditions and Spirituality for Healthcare Providers.
