 “Each year the Sunday Night Live Committee approaches area businesses, organizations and individuals to provide raffle prizes in support of our home town,” said Caryn Hohnholt, Vice President of Development. “Each year we are amazed by the generosity here in Kansas City, supporting end-of-life care for the area’s most vulnerable populations, especially children.”

The winning raffle tickets will be drawn at Sunday Night Live, the signature fundraising event for Kansas City Hospice & Palliative Care.
