February 2016

Posted on February 26, 2016 in Impact of Donors

The smell of freshly cut grass, the crack of the bat, hot dogs, peanuts, Cracker Jacks and cotton candy — it is that time of the year.

The dream to make a big-league roster. The dream of another division championship is on every Kansas City Royals baseball fan’s mind. A player’s dream to lift another World Series championship trophy. The “field of dreams” we are all looking for.

The dream to be at spring training as the boys of summer officially start the 2016 baseball season. Selfishly, those could be my dreams.

Quickly becoming a crowd favorite for young Catholics in KC, the CEF Art Event has now finished its fourth annual event held every February at Boulevard Brewery in Kansas City – arguably the best venue in town. For those of you who have not visited Boulevard Brewery you are most certainly missing out. The brewery offers a very cool rustic-yet-sophisticated atmosphere.  You can sip several taps of cold brew, including a tasting room selection only served at Brewery events, and support CEF at the same time!

A few weeks ago, I joined the Catholic Education Foundation family as Director of Events, and by the end of this week, will have had the privilege to visit and meet the children, and principals, at each of our CEF schools.

From roaming the halls at Christ the King, in Kansas City, Kansas, where my dad graduated grade school in 1959, to spotting my husband’s cap and gown picture from 1995, hanging on the cafeteria wall of John  Paul II, what an incredible reminder of the longstanding impact Catholic education has in our families, and in our communities.
