About Event

The Awesome Ambitions 25th Anniversary Celebration is presented by Community America Credit Union and T-Mobile. Our Honorary Chairpersons are India Boulton and Lisa Ginter. Our Event Co-chairs are Debby Ballard and Tammy Edwards.  Cynthia Newsome is Founder and President of Awesome Ambitions; Angela Curry is Co-Founder.

This Silver Anniversary celebration is a red-carpet affair including a VIP reception, plus a program with performances by R&B singer, songwriter, Oleta Adams and legendary Jazz Saxophonist, Kirk Whalum. Our special guests that night will be the Awesome Ambitions alumnae from 1997 -2022.

This is a fundraiser to help fulfill our mission of helping teenage girls in the greater Kansas City area make positive choices and develop a plan in high school to realize their dreams and achieve their purpose in life.  In addition to selling tickets to the event, we will have a live auction with incredible trips, sports experiences and furniture. We’re also adding a new fun way for people to support our mission.

For the first time we are offering a $100 SILVER TICKET.  A limited number of Silver Tickets will be sold—increasing your chance to win  a spectacular 4-day vacation  in New Orleans valued at $3,400! The drawing will happen during the program and concert in  the Gem Theater on July 21;  but you do NOT have to be present to win.
