We want to thank all of the sponsors and attendees at the UMB Big Bash last night, as well as our volunteers and supporters who make our work possible.

The event was a huge success, featuring Rob Thomas and the Plain White T’s, and Literacy Kansas City was presented with a check for $50,000! These funds will be used for the launch of an innovative, technology-driven approach to adult education by offering scholarships to a Career Online High School. We will also be able to create 30 scholarships to this 18-month program.
