For the past 30 years, the Black Tie Ball has been chaired by many of Greater Kansas City's most outstanding business leaders. Through their tireless efforts, The Black Tie Ball has raised over $8 million to advance the mission of LLS. We extend our deepest gratitude for their longtime commitment and dedication to helping LLS create a world without blood cancers.
