On behalf of the KCBS staff and Board of Directors, we would like to publicly thank the following sponsors and volunteers for their incredible contributions over the past several weeks.

Without the efforts of each of you, the first ever banquet for KCBS outside of Kansas City would not have been a success. So to everyone below (and perhaps others that we’ve mistakenly left off!), please accept our HUGE THANKS AND SINCERE APPRECATION!!!
