GOURMET FOOD, FINE WINE AND GREAT TIMES
More than 350 guests enjoyed an enchanted evening at the 2014 Pouring from the Heart gala and auction, Thursday, April 10, at the Westin Crown Center Hotel. The party patrons first enjoyed a gourmet meal planned and prepared by Todd Claytor, executive chef for the Westin and Sheraton Hotels. Each course of the fine dining was paired with specially selected wines from around the world. The evening’s activities then shifted into high gear with the raucous auction of 10 priceless packages that ranged from original art to vacation destinations to eclectic dining experiences. By the time the evening ended, more than $17,000 had been raised to support Fund the Care, which offers financial assistance to disadvantaged patients receiving treatment in the UMKC Oncology Dental Support at the School of Dentistry. Established in 1981 to serve as an intermediary between the oncologist and the dentist on behalf of the cancer patient, the UMKC Oncology Dental Support clinic provides advice, education, consultation and dental treatment related to oral health conditions and cancer therapies.

Dr. Addy Mohn chaired this year’s event, with assistance from:  Dr. Mike Dix, Dr. Jeremy Fry, Dr. Eric Gottman, Dr. John Haynes, Dr. Adam McClellan, Dr. Bart Putnam, Dr. Brian Sutton, Dr. Hilary Wheat, and Ms. Donna Weber.
