We're getting ready for another great UMB Big Bash®  in 2016!

Save the date for the 2016 UMB Big Bash.

UMB Big Bash is not your typical charity event. It’s a concert fundraiser that is more about having a great time for a great cause than about hob-knobbing. It’s more jeans than suits, more chips than caviar. The goal is to have BIG fun raising BIG money for important causes impacting the Kansas City community today.

Mark your calendars now and plan to join us on Thursday, June 23, 2016 for the sixth annual UMB Big Bash! The location and artist will be announced soon, but we assure you that the 2016 event will be something you won’t want to miss.
