The Research Foundation to celebrate Research College of Nursing students at Starlight Theatre

KANSAS CITY, Mo., (Sept. 3, 2019) – Tickets to The Research Foundation’s 2019 Research Royal Dinner & Auction “Give My Regards” are now available for purchase. The biennial fundraiser is Saturday, November 2 at Starlight Theatre. The event will raise funds for Research College of Nursing student scholarships.

The evening includes a cocktail social, live music by The Magnetics, dinner and dancing. Attendees will have the opportunity to participate in several fundraising activities including a silent auction, wine pull, and reverse raffle. Reverse raffle tickets are $50 each or two tickets for $75. One winner will receive a grand prize of $2,000 if they are the last remaining ticket drawn. As ticket holder numbers are drawn, they are eliminated from the Reverse Raffle. The holders of the final five tickets in the basket will be invited to the stage. If all five finalists are in agreement to split the prize monies, the grand prize of $2,000 will be divided among the five finalists. If any one of the finalists declines the split, tickets will be drawn until the remaining finalists agree to split or there is only one grand prize winner. Commemorative Research College of Nursing will also be for sale.

Event underwriters are Research Medical Center and UMB Bank. Other major sponsors include Ross Construction, J.E. Dunn Construction and LabCorp.
