We’re getting ready for a great show in 2015
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 our community today. This is our 5th anniversary and we hope to make it great for the event’s beneficiaries, attendees and Kansas City. The event will take place in June 2015, and we’re in the beginning phases of planning the musical artist and venue location.
