About Event

The iconic Kansas City Jazz District is an exceptional setting for our Awesome Ambitions 25th Anniversary Celebration! This is a Red Carpet affair with valet parking, a VIP reception for sponsors, and not one, but two powerhouse performers – the acclaimed R&B Singer and Songwriter, Oleta Adams, and the jazz legend himself, Saxophonist, Kirk Whalum.   

The Guests of Honor in this glamorous event are the celebrated Awesome Ambitions Alumnae from 1997 to 2022. You’ll see and hear their incredible success stories since graduating, and you’ll discover how Awesome Ambitions made a difference in their lives. Their stories will undoubtedly show the impact that Awesome Ambitions makes in a young woman's life.

In honor of our Silver Anniversary, we have a Silver Ticket you can purchase for a chance to win a 3-day trip to New Orleans. Everyone who enters gets a beautiful, keepsake bottle of Mano’s Wine etched with our Awesome Ambitions 25th anniversary logo.

  • Two season tickets to Starlight Theater

  • Chiefs package with all the trimmings
