The WellSky Foundation aims to promote positive change by providing financial support to organizations that offer care and healing to people, regardless of their socioeconomic status.  

All funds raised enhance non-profit organizations that tirelessly work to assist those whom the system has left behind. The WellSky Foundation has donated $1.7 million to more than 36 organizations over the last five years. These organizations address issues such as housing insecurity, food scarcity, limited access to transportation, and social isolation that can significantly and unjustly impact people’s well-being. 

Cocktail attire is suggested; wearing black and white is encouraged. 

Hotel accommodations for the Gala can be found at the all-new Loews Hotel Kansas City. The hotel showcases 800 guestrooms, a lobby bar, and a three-meal restaurant. It is conveniently within walking distance to key attractions and other destination landmarks like the Kansas City Power & Light District, T-Mobile Center, KC Streetcar, and the Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts.

The Loews is offering a special rate of $229 per night for Gala attendees. The deadline to reserve your room at the special rate is January 5, 2024.
