Foundation events

Cass Regional Medical Center Foundation hosts 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 Superheroes for Patients Dinner, 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 28, 2018, the Foundation hosted “Superheroes for Patients,” at Loch Lloyd Country Club in Belton. The fundraising efforts will help expand the Patient Assistance Fund. More than 150 guests attended the event and had the opportunity to bid on silent auction items and live auction items, as well as participate in a 50/50 raffle. The fundraising goal of “Superheroes for Patients” was $60,000, and over $65,000 was raised through the event. Cass Regional Foundation would like to thank all of the attendees, donors and sponsors that made this event a success.



Grin & Bear It 5K run/walk

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.

Boots & Bar-B-Que Ticket Order Form

These Boots Were Made for Walkin’!

Proceeds from Boots & Bar-B-Que will be used to develop the Floyd and Franceline Parris Community Trail on land behind the Cass Regional Medical Center campus in Harrisonville. The trail will be built solely with donated funds, and the estimated project cost is $585,000. Thanks to a recent generous bequest from the Franceline Parris Trust, the Foundation has a lead gift of $150,000 designated to the project, which is named in honor of Mrs. Parris and her husband. Construction on the trail will likely begin in the spring of 2020. The trail path will be 8 feet wide and have two connecting 1/4-mile loops. A key feature of the trail is that it will be paved and accessible for disabled patrons who use wheelchairs. There will be minimal new landscaping, with a focus on native, sustainable plants. The trailhead will include a small circular parking area with 10 spaces, two of which will offer access for persons with disabilities. A concrete pad will be located near the parking area to accommodate a portable unisex restroom. Ten benches will be placed along the trail to provide resting points, and at least one gazebo will be constructed to provide shelter. The trail project is a meaningful way in which Cass Regional Medical Center Foundation can fulfill its mission to further the vision of the medical center, particularly in promoting wellness.
