Singing Competition in Kansas City
KC SuperStar - 11th Annual Fundraiser for The J
The J’s Annual Fundraiser, KC SuperStar, provides financial assistance to our members so that they can partake in The J’s many services like the Child Development Center, CAMP, health and fitness, the arts, as well as meals + transportation for our Heritage Center (65+) members. Last year, with the help of our community, The J was able to provide $540,000 in financial aid!
In addition, KC SuperStar provides over $22,000 in scholarships to the 10 finalists who have made it through our high school, "American Idol" like competition. The top 10 train with local music professionals and perform for our donors and members in the Final show.
The J Needs Your Help, Now More Than Ever
This year we anticipate a greater need for financial assistance as our members and community face unemployment and other hardships due to Covid-19. The J has a projected loss of over $3.5 million in revenue as a result of being closed for 2 months, as well as reduced programming. Our goal is to raise $1,000,000 so that we do not have to pull from our endowment, and our wonderful J Staff can be retained without any further cuts in compensation. For The J to remain open and active means we can provide vital programs and services to our community, especially at a time like this when it is most needed.
You're Invited to the Finals Show
Keeping our community’s safety and social distancing at the forefront of our mind, our finals event will be virtual this year. On Sunday October 18, at 7:00 pm, donors will be able to watch from home, and vote for this year’s winner using their cell phones. Next year, when it is safe to gather, it is our hope to have a live event. Thank you for your support, as it means so much to our community, the KC SuperStar finalists, and The J.
