Shadow Buddies Charity Events in Kansas City, MO

Shadow Buddies Foundation hosts four annual events throughout the year to help with fund raising and spread awareness of our organization throughout the Kansas City area. Each event benefits one of our unique programs, so we can continue spreading “Miles of Smiles” within our Kansas City community and beyond.

If you are interested in implementing any of our programs, or have additional fundraising ideas, please feel free to contact us online or call us at 913 642-4646 today.

Shoot for the Kids

This event is by far the most thrilling! Our Shoot for the Kids Clay Disc Contest is a day filled with fun! Teams from all over come to raise money for our “Courage Capes” program. This allows us to provide child size capes to pediatric patients while receiving medical treatments. This event has been rescheduled to Thursday, April 22. Same place same time!

Golf Tournament

The Birdies, Bogies, and Buddies Golf Tournament is dedicated to raising money for the Shadow Buddies Summer Back Pack Program. This program supports medically challenged children going to specialty camps across the country! The event will be held on Monday, May 17th, 2021 at Dub's Dread Golf Club.

Annual Benefit Dinner

The Annual Benefit Dinner has proven to be the biggest Shadow Buddies event yet! Each year is a different theme, bringing fun and festive entertainment as well as a silent auction! The proceeds from this event help create new programs and nurture our pre-existing programs. September 17, 2021 at Children's Mercy Park

Fantasy Flight

Unfortunately, due to COVID-19 this event for 2020 has been cancelled but we are still accepting toys for the holiday toy drive. There is no better way to start off the holiday season than with a flight to the North Pole! Partnering with United Airlines, we provide the opportunity for 50 medically challenged children to fly to the North Pole and meet Santa himself! December, 2020

More Ways to Help

If you are unable to attend a charity dinner, our charity golf tournament, or other charity drives, you can still help the Shadow Buddies Foundation. You can be a sponsor or donate your time to one of our volunteer events. Sponsoring an event or joining our list of donors helps us do more good in our Kansas City community. Giving money or time allows us to spread “Miles of Smiles.”

As one of our donors, you play a huge role in bringing light into the world. Being part of our fundraising effort helps our foundation grow and bring joy and comfort to children dealing with childhood disabilities or illnesses.
You can also help by providing more fundraising event ideas, organizing new events, or building up our existing events and programs.

Maybe you have the resources to organize a celebrity gala or the platform to get community members to attend a haunted house event. Perhaps you can help us organize a scavenger hunt, dance marathon, or movie night. We welcome all volunteers, ideas, donations, and can-do personalities to help support our mission of helping kids in need.
