Celebrate 49 Years of Impact

The 49th Annual Snow Ball returns to a completely in-person experience this year.  Join us at the Overland Park Convention Center on January 21, 2023 as we celebrate the generosity of our incredible community and the good works of Catholic Charities of Northeast Kansas. 

Snow Ball is a celebration of many months of hard work by teams of volunteers.  Unique in the fact that there is NO fundraising at the event, Snow Ball truly sets itself apart as one of the biggest and best parties of the year. 

Your participation – either through a Patron Gift or by attending – enables Catholic Charities to continue to support and provide services for those who need it most.  Although Snow Ball raises significant funds, even if we raised more, there would still be needs in our community to be met.

Join us this year in making the 49th Annual Snow Ball one to remember.

Kevin and Pam Kramer are the presidents and Nelson and Marcia Newcomer 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.

Your Support Makes a Difference

When you make a Patron Gift or purchase a ticket or table to Snow Ball, you are making an impact in the lives of those we serve across our 21-county service area. Here are a few ways that your support helps us carry out our mission:

$25 can help supply diapers to a child in need

$35 can provide food assistance to a family for a week

$50 can provide a month of transportation to a newly resettled refugee family

$100 can purchase a pack-n-play for a pregnant mother

$150 can provide a St. Rita Program graduate with scrubs and shoes for a new job in healthcare

$300 can help a struggling family pay rent and utilities for a month

90 cents of every dollar from a direct donation goes straight into Catholic Charities’ 30+ programs. Every year, the annual Snow Ball raises 50% of the private donations to Catholic Charities Foundation of Northeast Kansas.
