Pembroke Hill Fundraiser 2015 Union Station by KCMB News Kansas City

It was a stellar night as the PHS Auction 2015 "met under the clock" at Union Station on Saturday night February 28th. The Pembroke Hill fundraiser 2015 at Union Station featured a plated dinner presented by Pierponts restaurant (located inside Union Station), and a delicious desert buffet. During cocktails there were several silent auction, or as Pembroke Hill called it, a "super auction" that included fun items such as children's activities like horseback riding and lessons, ice skating parties, voice lessons, and other great children's items up for auction. There were also several fun adventure items like driving an excavator or a dump truck, suites for performances at the Sprint Center, and even a dinner with Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith at Capital Grille.


The Pembroke Hill 2015 auction featured a grab bag with golden ticket items and a wine pull. There was also a live auction before dinner that included items such as trips to Belize, Grand Cayman, Napa, and even a trip to Chicago with Cubs tickets included. Also in the live auction they had a chance to attend the Los Angeles premier of the new Hunger Games movie.

After the live auction the evening was topped off with surprise entertainment from BIG SHOW Dueling Pianos, who got the guests up dancing and singing along with some great music. All and all it was a wonderful evening with great food, excellent entertainment and all for a great cause, Pembroke Hill. We can't wait to see what they have in store for us next year!

Dueling Pianos VooDoo Harrahs February 20th, 2015 by KCMB News Kansas City

Friday night, February 20th, Harrah's VooDoo Lounge in Kansas City will feature Dueling Pianos. The concert will feature complimentary drinks and live entertainment. Known for hosting a number of wonderful events, The VooDoo Lounge at Harrah's in North Kansas City has a nice list of National and local Kansas City bands that perform on weekends along with some great Kansas City DJs. The dance floor is usually kicking every weekend at The VooDoo Harrah's and this Friday night will be no exception.

The doors will open at 6:30pm for VIP members who have made advanced reservations, and then the show starts at 8pm. Drinks are complimentary for VIP members of Harrah's Total Rewards members and their guests.

What Are Dueling Pianos?

The flow of a Dueling Pianos show is a little different than that of a live band in that the crowd is encouraged to make requests of the dueling piano players. Audience members typically make requests by filling out little slips of paper or sticky notes typically provided by the venue or the dueling piano players themselves. Generally, in a dueling piano environment, a tip is expected with each request. Obviously, the bigger the tip, the more likely your song is to get played. For example, a decent tip is at least $5 minimum, and a good tip would be $20. Most dueling pianos performers will charge $20 or more to get an audience member on stage, say, if it's their birthday etc.

This Friday night, February 20th, 2015 at VooDoo Lounge Harrah's North Kansas City, the audience will get a chance to watch these guys in action, and join in the fun. See you there, and if you get there first save us a seat!

ALS Fundraiser 2014 Starlight Theatre Kansas City

A Night of Hope 2014 ALS Charity Event Starlight Theatre

This Friday the Keith Worthington Chapter of Kansas City's local ALS Foundation held it's 26th annual gala "A Night of Hope". The fundraiser was held at Starlight Theatre and the theme this year was stars of the big screen and theater. Guests dressed up as their favorite stars and walked the red carpet upon entrance to the gala. We spotted Elvis, Ellen, Austin Powers and his "shag girls", Cleopatra and several more great costumes. The guests at the ALS gala seem like one big family, even though there were several hundred in attendance. Many Kansas City charity events and fundraising organizations don't appear to be as closely knit as the ALS group. These kind people are very dedicated indeed to funding ALS research as was marked by the extraordinary length of the auction portion of the night.

A Night Of Hope 2014 at Starlight Theatre started out with a silent auction that included autographed sports memorabilia, and many great donations made by local Kansas City businesses and restaurants. The night then went into a live auction where patrons bid on lavish vacations to different tropical locations, condo stays and packages, and tickets to major sporting events. After that auction was over, they went into an open cash auction - in which bidders simply raised their bidding cards when a dollar amount was announced. The auctioneer would call out to the guests at Starlight Theatre "Ten Thousand Dollars, do we have anyone who would like to donate Ten Thousand Dollars", and on and on it went all the way down to $250. The auction portion of A Night Of Hope 2014 ALS charity event lasted over 3 hours, topping even the most lengthy auction in Kansas City, Children's Mercy Hospital, who are known to have extremely long auctions as well. Their goal was to raise over $50,000 in direct cash donations and they easily topped that number. It was very clear that the ALS chapter in Kansas City are extremely committed to their charity, and this charity event at Starlight Theatre proved their dedication. Awards were given out as well, one award called the Tom Watson Award for Courage, and another award called the George Brett Award for Commitment.

The 2014 ALS charity fundraiser event ended with a fantastic performance by Big Show Dueling Pianos, who got the audience up on their feet and dancing for the remainder of the evening. These guys were incredible, you could tell that they were no average piano bar players like what you see downtown, these dueling piano players were of the highest caliber and the night ended with chants of "one more song, one more song" - simply incredible entertainment from Big Show Dueling Pianos.
