Bloom Party


KC CARE turns 50 in 2021! That’s a big deal.

During those 50 years, no other community event has engaged more of our supporters or captured more attention than our Bloom Party. Raising more than $3.5 million, Bloom has completely redefined and elevated the Kansas City philanthropic community’s expectations for nonprofit events. Its innovation, creativity and execution have raised the bar for nonprofits city-wide, and other organizations have followed suit.

The success of Bloom is undoubtedly due to scores of our loyal patrons, invaluable in-kind sponsors and, especially, our spectacular committee volunteers. From the earliest days at Free For All to the final flight of Bloom Air, you are the ones most deserving of our thanks!

As KC CARE looks ahead to the next 50 years, we are stepping away from our Bloom Party to identify opportunities for new, progressive concepts that will, once again, redefine community-engaging, philanthropic events.

KC CARE seeks new avenues of telling our story in clear and compelling ways, raising critical support for our essential healthcare services, and captivating our guests with novel experiences.

We need you! Your continued involvement is critical to our success. The best way you can support us, prior to the 50th anniversary celebration in 2021, is by participating in the We Care KC Brunch on Friday, April 3, 2020. Secure your sponsorship now. More details will be available January 2020.

As we bid farewell to Bloom and look ahead, we would like to thank you for your support and commitment to our fundraising and development efforts over the years. KC CARE would not be the heart of community healthcare without the efforts of supporters like you.
