Spend an evening under the stars and support The Research Foundation's scholarships for undergraduate nursing students at the Research Royal Dinner & Auction.

We believe students who have the clinical skills and desire to become a nurse should be able to, including those without financial resources. The money we raise together will help students focus on their education and better prepare for their dawning career as a nurse. Join us from 6 to 11 p.m. on Saturday, November 13 at the Sheraton Overland Park Hotel for The Research Foundation's 14th Research Royal Dinner & Auction: Night Shift, A Benefit Under the Stars.

We are taking the following precautions to ensure a safe event. Masks will be strongly recommended for all attendees when not seated at your table eating. Attendees can participate in all of the evening's activities through our mobile bidding platform. All hotel staff members are required to wear masks and 98% of hotel staff are vaccinated. Touchless sanitizing stations will be located throughout the event. Masks will be available at registration. 





Our event is full of opportunities for you to raise money for nursing student scholarships and celebrate the future of nursing. Sign in to our mobile bidding platform now so you are prepared for an evening full of activities on Saturday, November 13!
