‘Luau with Love’ to benefit kids in crisis
St. Patrick Parents Class of 2009 is once again collaborating with PACES to hold “A Luau with Love” – this year to help fund operating expenses for Robert’s Place, the new emergency shelter for kids in crisis in Wyandotte County. “Remembering Robert: A Luau with Love” is set for 6 to 10 p.m. Saturday, June 27, at St. Patrick Parish Center, 94th and State Avenue, Kansas City, Kan. For a $25 per person donation, guests will enjoy a buffet meal, entertainment, games, and a silent auction and other fundraising events. The Luau commemorates Robert Zevenbergen, former St. Patrick parishioner, who died at age 20 in a tragic car accident on March 20, 2014.

Robert’s Place is a program of PACES, the Wyandotte County nonprofit agency that provides services to address emotional and behavioral needs of children and adolescents, and their families. Last year’s Luau with Love benefited the capital campaign to build the new Robert’s Place that will open this summer. This year’s proceeds will go toward ongoing operations of the emergency shelter.
