JJ's Restaurant Benefit and Silent Auction

Posted on the 01 March 2013 by Morage @kebmebms

  JJ's Restaurant Benefit and Silent Auction   There is another fundraiser coming up this coming Tuesday evening at 7 pm at Uptown Hall (formerly Uptown Theater) at 3700 Broadway.
It is sponsored by the official "Friends of JJ's" group and is to be a  "a party with JJ’s Restaurant owners, staff, patrons and friends in support of JJ's employees impacted by a devastating fire Feb. 19, 2013. Hosted by former Chiefs player Eddie Kennison and KCTV5’s Kelly Jones, attendees will enjoy food and drink from area restaurants while listening to live music on multiple stages and browsing a silent auction with a number of items from local merchants."
According to the press release:
Proceeds will benefit the immediate needs of JJ’s staff and employees impacted by the Plaza fire, as well as create a fund in honor of Megan Cramer, a JJ’s colleague who died in the Feb. 19 fire.
Tickets to the March 5 Benefit go on sale Wednesday, Feb. 27 at 10 a.m. through Ticketmaster.
And here's the great thing. Tickets to attend are only $10 for most of us working-class schmucks. It's an excellent way to be able to support this group affordably.
For those with more money and/or capabilities and for companies and corporations in town, there are yet more ways to help. Other ticket level groups are as follows:
Trésor Club - $500 – includes on-site event concierge, VIP door entry, secured parking, early access to silent auction at 6pm, access to private bar (complimentary food and beverages), super-premium seating, and commemorative poster.

Sabre Club - $200 – includes VIP door entry, access to private bar (complimentary food and beverages), premium seating, and commemorative poster.
The Locker Room - $100 – includes seating, two drink tickets, and commemorative poster.
So by all means, folks, let's be sure to put this on our calendars and get down to the Uptown to help these people.
And have a great time, at the same time.
