April 2009 / Bott Radio Network Co-Sponsors City Union Mission’s 2nd Annual “Women Who’ve Changed the Heart of the City” Banquet, Thursday, April 16th
Bott Radio Network was pleased to Co-Sponsor City Union Mission’s 2nd Annual “Women Who’ve Changed the Heart of the City” Banquet, held at the Hyatt Regency Ballroom, Thursday, April 16th. The banquet honored several women of distinction whose hearts for others have been personified in their character and philanthropy for the poor and needy among us in Kansas City. By their example, they have led others to pursue the high calling of service. During the Banquet, their daughters honored these ladies via video, by sharing stories & memories about their Moms.
The Banquet was a fundraiser for City Union Mission’s Camp CUMCITO which stands for City Union Mission Camp In The Ozarks, which is located near Warsaw, Missouri, at the Lake of the Ozarks. Camp CUMCITO provides inner city children with the experience of the outdoors in a safe and comforting setting, many for the first time in their lives. This is only a part of the mission of City Union Mission, which has been serving the poor in Kansas City for over 85 years. For more information about this fine organization, visit www.cumission.org.
