Saturday night at Shadow Glen Country Club the "Gala at the Glen" Charity fundraiser was held for The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation of greater Kansas City. Kansas City Cystic Fibrosis Chapter Board Member Beau Guyette headed this annual Kansas City charity event held at The Shadow Glen Country Club, and this year's charity gala was another HUGE success.
The Gala at the Glen charity event raised several thousand dollars this year that will go towards the advancement of Cystic Fibrosis research, patient care and hopefully an eventual cure. Local Kansas City Chairman Beau Guyette gave a heart warming speech after dinner, highlighting the benefits of the Cystic Fibrosis organization and what it has done for millions of people including one of his young daughters. The Gala on the Glen had a wonderful dinner, followed by entertainment by Kansas City dueling pianos, "The Dueling Piano Guys" , produced by Adam Blue Productions, who had everyone at the event on their feet and singing along. The Dueling Piano Guys also generated over $1000.00 in tips which they donated to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.
The annual Kansas City charity event is one of the best galas of the year, and all that were in attendance that night had a wonderful time. The patrons were very generous with their donations and they helped to make the Gala on the Glen a success for everyone, especially the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.
