The Medicine Cabinet DOSE of FUN

In the past, we’ve called it the “Tip-Off”, but the annual fundraising concert held at the historic Uptown Theater on February 17th had a NEW NAME!  The Medicine Cabinet DOSE of FUN started with a Patrons’ Party KC picnic-style…  and continued into the theater for a foot-stomping musical concert featuring the classic NITTY GRITTY DIRT BAND and an opening performance from vintage Southern country rock favorites Ozark Mountain Daredevils!! The theater was filled to capacity to see these two iconic bands. Patrons enjoyed a tree-lined Valentine Room at the Uptown prior to claiming their seat at the concert and enjoyed picnic fare, libations, music, and a visit from Teresa and Frank White, the KC Medicine Cabinet Spokespersons. Patron tickets also included a $75 tax deductible donation to Kansas City’s Medicine Cabinet. THANK YOU! Below, please see a list of our generous sponsors.

WRAP UP… 2016 KC Tip-Off: Western Style!


On February 27th, Kansas City’s Medicine Cabinet held its largest fundraising event of the year. Country legend Dwight Yoakam took the Uptown stage with his unmistakable Kentucky croon and rockabilly style in a benefit concert for the 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! Sunflowers in sarsaparilla bottles adorned the red-checked tablecloths, with bandannas, cowboys, lassos and split-rail fences finishing out the image of a country barn dance. Keeping with Yoakam’s signature look… party favors of chocolate cowboy hats from Annedore’s were handed to patrons as they left the theater. Media partner 106.5 The Wolf DJ’s, Roger, Codie and Shotgun energized the crowd with a rousing game of Heads or Tails and KC Medicine Cabinet Spokespersons, Teresa and Frank White, spoke of their four years supporting KCMC by helping to spread the word about the program and its importance to Kansas City people with a health crisis.


Thanks to Laurie and Chip Ingram who served as Honorary Chairmen for the event. Since 2005, more than $5.5 million 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.
