JKV Gala Being Postponed Until July 2021
In only a few short weeks, so much has changed for the John Knox Village Foundation!
First, because of the restrictions put in place to slow the spread of COVID-19, we had to take a long, hard look at whether or not we should continue pursing our plans to host the John Knox Village Gala. At first, we thought moving it from mid-July to late August would enable us to host the event. However, as new details emerge about the virus, we decided to reschedule the gala to 2021.
However, just because our fiesta is taking a siesta, our job of raising funds to buy a bus – or two – for our residents to use is not going away. In fact, we are working on a campaign to help get our residents “On the Road Again!”
John Knox Village has a fleet of buses that transport residents throughout the area to medical appointments, shopping destinations, churches, etc. However, adding buses will enable the Village to add even more “special” trips outside the campus. The additional buses will enable the current fleet to conduct “business as usual” routes, and add fun trips for residents who live throughout the continuum, such as lunch and shopping in downtown Lee’s Summit, field trips to special attractions and more.
Please watch for additional information, which will be shared soon!
