Snow Ball

Thank You

Thank you for joining us at the 48th Annual Snow Ball. We are pleased to announce that over $3.7 million was raised to help Catholic Charities of Northeast Kansas to continue to provide help, hope and hospitality to our neighbors in need! Read More.

Let’s Celebrate the 48th Annual Snow Ball Together!

This year, we are thrilled to offer both an in-person and a virtual option for Snow Ball—there’s something for everyone!  Whether you are near or far, we invite you to celebrate with us on January 15, 2022. The annual Snow Ball is one of Kansas City’s largest celebrations of generosity! Its success is critical to the mission of Catholic Charities and our ability to welcome and serve the most vulnerable children, women and men in our local communities, providing help, hope and hospitality.

Mark and Donna Teahan are the presidents and Tom and Patti Schugel are the honorary presidents for the gala. The traditional black-tie in-person event will include a cocktail reception, formal sit-down dinner and dancing to live music. The evening’s program and remarks will be livestreamed to our guests celebrating online. The virtual Snow Ball will also feature heartfelt stories of hope and live interviews with our Catholic Charities team.
