Jazzoo 2012 Charity Event Kansas City News

Tonight thousands of supporters will invade the Kansas City Zoo wearing custom tuxedos, sampling exquisite cuisine from over 65 local Kansas City restaurants, enjoying designer cocktails and donating to a wonderful cause, the animals at The Kansas City Zoo.  Kansas City's largest charity event, Jazzoo 2012, actually ranks among the top ten charity events in the entire United States.  Last year, in 2011, this Kansas City charity event raised over $800,000.  Tickets are $175.00 each, and can be purchased online at the Kansas City Zoo's website.

Jazzoo 2012 Kansas City fundraiser will feature live music by Ida McBeth, Dr. Zhivegas, Dolewite and several other Kansas City bands provided by Adam Blue Productions.  Jazzoo 2012 will begin at 6:30pm with a patrons only "happy hour" and then the main gates will open at 7:30pm.  Jazzoo 2012 will be open until 12am. There will be 10 specialty bars set up throughout the Kansas City Zoo at different locations.

The dress code for Jazzoo 2012 is what makes this Kansas City charity event so special.  The dress code is known as "creative black tie". No jeans are allowed, but you can get pretty creative with your tuxedo or evening gown. See the picture above for an example, Jazzoo is a very unique experience as the guests will be donning very entertaining costumes.

All of the benefits of Jazzoo 2012 go towards the animals of the Kansas City Zoo, and this year, in particular, the "extreme makeover" of the Tiger display area. Several different ticket package options are also available including single tickets at $175.00 each and several corporate packages are also available if you would like to bring your entire company out to Jazzoo 2012.  In the past few years the weather has ranged from extremely hot to rainy, but this year it looks like the weather will be ideal as we are experiencing a cool weather patch in Kansas City. So come out tonight and spend the evening wandering around the Kansas City Zoo, eating great food, drinking a cool beverage or two, listening to some great live music and supporting the animals at Jazzoo 2012.

St. Lukes Mid America Heart Institute Grand Opening

This Sunday St. Luke's Hospital will have an open house for the grand opening of the Mid America Heart Institute, a brand new, state of the art heart facility that will employ 60 new doctors and surgeons, over 100 hospital beds and the latest in heart care equipment. The $330 Million dollar expansion has been years in the making and will replace the old Mid America Heart Institute, that building will become the new brain and stroke center.

Sunday's events will run from 1pm - 5pm, unfortunately smack in the middle of the Kansas City Chiefs game. The initial plan was to hold the open house and grand opening on Saturday, but the powers that be at St. Luke's are mostly Jewish and that would have interfered with Yom Kippur or something like that. So, they will be having it on Sunday, October 9th instead - during the Chiefs game.

Entertainment will be going all day for guests all ages including an appearance by Radio Disney, Darryl Terrell, Liverpool, Ida McBeth, and the grand finale will be a live performance by The KC All Stars. The new building will have an entrance directly off of Broadway and will be open to the public starting at 12 noon on Sunday. St. Luke's new Mid America Heart Institute is a welcome new addition to the excellent health care program and will surely save many lives in Kansas City in the years to come.
