Valentines Day Kansas City Sunflower House Gala 2012

Looking for the perfect Valentines Day event to attend in 2012? The Sunflower House Gala 2012 in Kansas City provides an opportunity to attend a wonderful evening of dining and dancing, while at the same time donating to a worthy Kansas City Charity event. If the 2012 Gala is anything like last year's Sunflower House Valentine Gala, you and your date will be in for a real treat! At last year's gala, they had one of the hottest dance bands in Kansas City, The KC All Stars, who kept the dance floor packed all night long. This year's gala will feature entertainment provided by Adam Blue Productions, and they are going to have Dueling Pianos! The dueling pianos will definitely make the Sunflower House Gala 2012 an amazing and fresh event to attend on Valentine's Day in Kansas City.

Here is a blurb from the Sunflower House Valentine Gala 2012 website:

Grab your Valentine and join Gala Co-Chairs-Chief Rick and Allison Armstrong and Chief Ellen Hanson–as we celebrate 30 years of protecting children from abuse. Larry Moore will host another fabulous evening with a gourmet dinner with fine wine, live and silent auctions, and live entertainment and dancing from Roll Over Beethoven-Kansas City’s leading dueling piano pair. For their years of dedicated service to Sunflower House and the Kansas City community, Ernie and Susan Straub will be recognized as the 2012 Honorary Chairs.

Sunflower House Valentine's Day Gala 2011

Kansas City Charity Events - The Sunflower House Valentine's Day Gala 2011
by Kansas City News

Once again a "who's who" of Kansas City events, The Sunflower House Valentine's Day Gala was a huge hit.  In attendance were District Attorney Jerry Gorman, Johnson County District Attorney Steven Howe, KMBC-TV's Larry Moore, Gary Ryther and a host of prominent Kansas City business and community leaders.  The event was produced by Adam Blue Productions and featured entertainment from Kansas City's hottest dance band The KC All Stars.

Sunflower House is a local Kansas City charity that raises money to assist children who are victims of child abuse in Wyandotte and Johnson County.  According to the event's MC and our good friend Larry Moore "The people at Sunflower House do a marvelous job working to help these kids. Sunflower House is a wonderful facility replacing the tiny quarters of the former Johnson County Coalition Against Child Abuse and it also provides for abused kids from Wyandotte County.  For me, it’s been a great opportunity to view the progress that has been made in 28 years in dealing with children who are victims of child abuse. These are children in our community we see each day. Sunflower House provides a place of hope and healing for over 450 children and their caregivers each year. I’m very pleased to have been a part of that effort for 28 years."  Larry Moore continued to add "The sobering reason for the annual event is that one in four girls and one in six boys will be sexually abused before they reach the age of 18."

Sunflower House is a child abuse prevention center serving Wyandotte and Johnson counties in Kansas. Founded in 1977, Sunflower House is a non-residential child advocacy center and an accredited member of the National Children's Alliance.

MISSION: To protect children in our community from physical and sexual abuse through education, advocacy, forensic and medical services.

Child Assessment and Medical Services:
Sunflower House provides a child-friendly, safe environment where children may share details about their abuse with a specially trained forensic interviewer. We also provide wellness and medical evaluations in our on-site clinic, facilitating early diagnosis and intervention.
Community Education:
Sunflower House provides personal safety education to schools and educates over 27,000 children, parents and professionals each year through P.S. It's My Body!, Keeping Kids Safe Online, Stewards of Children, Mandated Reporter Training and other educational programs.
