2019 Stand By Me ~ THANK YOU!

Thank you to all who attended and donated!
Our event this year was the most successful to date thanks to YOU!

On October 27th, more than 100 of KABC’s friends attended our 11th annual Stand By Me charity event in Lawrence.  It was a festive afternoon of food & drink, excellent magic acts, a photo booth, music and charity auction.  You can watch our new Stand By Me video here.  A big thank you to Matt DeSarle, MattyDMedia, LLC. 

Many thanks to all who helped raise a generous amount in support of better elder care. Thank you to sponsors, auction donors and bidders and all who contributed. A complete list of sponsors is below.  Gifts to KABC’s “Fund A Need – Improve A Life” program during the event will empower older adults to live fearlessly at home and in care facilities, declare their choices for care, and amplify their voice in the Legislature.
Your generosity to empower older adults raised over $9,300!

Thanks too to Lester & Mark Edgecomb, Edgecomb Auction Service, for donating their talents and time for the 6th year.

All proceeds from Stand By Me will help older adults in need of long-term care information, guidance, resources and advocacy for better care in the coming year.
