Prom With A Purpose™

Event Information

Presented By:



Prom with a Purpose™ is an incredibly fun and brand-new event hitting the Kansas City Philanthropic scene on September 30th, 2023 at Hy-Vee Arena. The inaugural event is being presented by Centerwell, Senior Primary Care. Prom with a Purpose™ will provide a new revenue stream to support KC Shepherd’s Center, a home-grown organization dedicated to serving older adults across the greater Kansas City area. Offered by seniors, for seniors, our peer-to-peer programs increase social activity, reduce food insecurity and provide peace of mind to help eliminate feelings of isolation and loneliness. In 2022, KC Shepherd’s Center celebrated 50 years of service.

The highlight of the event will be the crowning of the Junior (59 and under) and Senior (60 and above) Prom King and Queen.  Nominated from the community, we were intentional about selecting a diverse group of Kansas Citians who are passionate, community-minded, movers and shakers who are dedicated to making a difference and shining a light on issues facing Older Adults in our community.
