Some Enchanted Evening
Some Enchanted EveningSM will be held Saturday, November 8, 2014 at the Overland Park Marriott Hotel. The black-tie event benefits scholarships and featured an elegant five-course gourmet dinner served with fine wines, a social hour, entertainment arranged and performed specially for the evening, and dancing until midnight.
Chair for the event is Mary Birch, and Bryan Biggs will serve as corporate sponsor chair.
The JCCC Foundation has helped thousands of students pursue their dream of a college education. Students with exceptional needs, such as single parents and displaced workers, and talented students in all areas of study benefit from Foundation scholarships. More than $5.5 million has been raised over the past 27 years for the student scholarship program through Some Enchanted EveningSM.
The highlight will be presenting the Johnson Countian of the Year honor to Gary Morsch. “The JCCC Foundation is privileged to recognize Dr. Morsch through this award,” said Stewart Stein, JCCC Foundation president. “His significant contributions to underserved populations and nonprofit communities are truly inspiring. We look forward to celebrating his achievements at our Some Enchanted EveningSM gala this fall.”
“Dr. Gary Morsch and Heart to Heart International bring aid, comfort and hope to those who suffer anywhere in the world,” said Joe Sopcich, JCCC president. “His humanitarian efforts toward individual relief have global consequences. In his quest to alleviate suffering, he does what is right, and as a result, is an inspiration to those around him and beyond. It is our honor to recognize him as the 2014 Johnson Countian of the Year.”
