KANSAS CITY, NORTH – There were smiles and handshakes all around as 2015 Harvest Ball Society President Christine Evans presented checks totaling $404,100 to 30 area nonprofit organizations Jan. 19 at Argosy Casino Hotel & Spa. HBS members raised the funds by hosting two annual events: the Adorn Style Show & Brunch in September and the Harvest Ball in November. Since 1987, $7.8 million in grants have been distributed to organizations that primarily serve people in need in the Northland.

Our theme for 2015 was Cultivating Philanthropy to Create a Thriving Northland, explained Evans. The 30 charities selected to receive funding in 2015 have a life-changing impact on many in need – from the very young to those at the very end of life. HBS is honored to be a small part of all they accomplish.”

Nonprofits that received HBS funding are:
