Cass Regional Medical Center Foundation hosts three signature fundraising events annually.

Annual Fundraising Dinner and Raffle

The annual fundraising dinner is the Foundation’s largest fundraising event. Past dinner themes have included the Celebrity Academy Dinner, Boots & Bar-B-Que, A Mystery Evening and the Silver Celebration (in honor of the Foundation’s 25th anniversary in 2014). Recent years have also featured the Celebration Basket and special item raffles in the Cass Regional Rotunda during Hospital Week. Proceeds most often are used to purchase equipment for Cass Regional Medical Center.

On April 29, 2017, the Foundation will once again host Boots & Bar-B-Que at 5:30 p.m. at Big Iron Town in Pleasant Hill, Missouri. Tickets are avaialble at $30 per person. Join us for some great barbeque and live music. The event will also feature raffles as well as a live and silent auction. Proceeds from the event will purchase a trauma patient simulator for the ongoing training and preparedness of Cass Regional's Emergency Department staff and area EMS professionals. For more information, please visit Cass Regional Foundation's Facebook page, call (816) 380-5888, extension 4810, or email mlattin@cassregional.org.

Healthy Angels Ride

The Healthy Angels Ride was founded in 2005 by three Cass Regional nurses- Ginger Friesz, Sheryl Knox, and Kathy Selley – who are also motorcycle enthusiasts. The trio wanted to organize a motorcycle ride to benefit patients at Cass Regional, and from their efforts, the Patient Assistance Fund was founded. The 11th annual Healthy Angels Ride, held Saturday, August 15, 2015, was the conclusion and closing of the annual event. For questions, or for more information, please contact the Foundation office at 816-380-5888, extension 4810.

Grin & Bear It 5K and Family Fun Run

The Grin & Bear It Run was founded in 2010 in memory of Cara Jo Roberts. Cara’s nickname was “Care Bear,” which is how the event got its name. Proceeds from the Grin & Bear It Run benefit the Patient Assistance Fund. The 7th annual run is scheduled for Saturday, September 17, 2016. For more information, visit www.grinandbearitrun.com.
