Overland Park, KS (PRWEB) May 14, 2013
KVC is teaming up with KU Coach Bill Self on behalf of children in foster care and foster, adoptive and biological families for The KVC Hero Luncheon on Thursday, June 13th from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Overland Park Convention Center, 6000 College Blvd, Overland Park, KS 66211.
The KVC Hero Luncheon features Self speaking about his experiences and how everyone can step up to be a hero for a child or family today. The luncheon, chaired by Jeff Spencer of Holmes Murphy, also showcases KVC Everyday Heroes, who make a tremendous difference in the lives of children by providing support for essential medical, psychological, and education needs, and making dreams such as violin lessons, summer camp, or the perfect prom dress a reality.
“KVC and I both know that you don’t have to have superpowers to make a difference in the life of a child, and I am proud to be a part of this event that celebrates the heroes among us,” Coach Bill Self said.
Individual tickets and sponsorships are available starting at $100 per ticket or $1000 per table of ten. All proceeds benefit KVC’s Foundation.
