COINS FOR THE CABINET
Contact us to participate in our November 2016 coin collection from November 1st through the 4th. A wrap up party will be held at Union Station on November 5th featuring school bands, radio broadcasts, fun and games… and MUCH more! Your school or company’s small change can add up to BIG change for those who need help!
WHAT IS COINS FOR THE CABINET? It’s a simple idea… the forgotten pennies, nickels, dimes and quarters in your couch or your spare change jar can provide emergency medical assistance for Kansas Citians in need. We place a jar in your classroom or your office during one week in November and your classmates or co-workers can figure out how to run the collection. Some schools have competitions. Some businesses have garage sales or team challenges. It’s totally up to you! Call us today to find out how you can participate in 2016! (816) 276-7555
Kansas City Tip-Off: Western Style
The 8th Annual Benefit Concert for Kansas City’s Medicine Cabinet
Saturday, February 27, 2016
WRAP UP… 2016 KC Tip-Off: Western Style!
Country legend Dwight Yoakam took the Uptown stage with his unmistakable Kentucky croon and rockabilly style on Saturday, February 27 in a benefit concert for Kansas City’s Medicine Cabinet. The historic venue was sold out and the entire crowd was on their feet as Yoakam played 30 of his greatest hits back to back.
A Patrons’ Party was held in the Uptown Valentine Room prior to the concert and featured western swing music by 3 Trails West, a photo booth fashioned as an Old West saloon and lots of fun and games!
Since 2005, more than five million dollars has been provided for prescription assistance, eyeglasses, hearing aids and emergency dental services to Kansas Citians living below the Federal Poverty Line.
One hundred percent of the proceeds from the concert will go directly to services for Medicine Cabinet clients.
