KC Magazine's Most Wanted
Each year, KC Magazine selects 30 dynamic, charismatic, passionate, hard-working professionals to be honored as KC’s Most Wanted. These individuals are movers and shakers who are making a difference in their profession, in their community and in the lives of the people around them. These are people that deserve to be recognized for the work they have already accomplished and for their ambitions that we are sure will be turning heads for years to come.
The selected honorees are profiled and featured in KC Magazine. In addition, as one of KC’s Most Wanted at one of the most anticipated events of the year – The Most Wanted Auction, benefiting Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Kansas City.
This event brings the Most Wanted honorees together with one of Kansas City’s most reputable and important non-profits. Each of the 30 Most Wanted are asked to put all of their talent, creativity and resources together for a good cause and create an auction experience to benefit Big Brothers Big Sisters. These auction packages are not your typical, boring auction packages. These packages are once-in-a-lifetime opportunities that our class of Most Wanted work tirelessly to secure. Using their resources and contacts they are able to create packages that appeal to a wide audience and that will raise big bucks for Big Brothers Big Sisters.
Here are a few successful auction packages over the years:
-A trip to the set of Modern Family and a chance to meet Eric Stonestreet.
-An amazing Hong Kong adventure
-Super Bowl tickets
-An African Safari
-A Mardi Gras weekend vacation with a chance to ride on a float in the Mardi Gras parade
-And much, much more.
The Most Wanted Auction is not your average auction. This is a high-energy event. It’s a party, not a sit down gala. The public will be invited to attend to honor the Most Wanted Class and to bid on the packages to benefit Big Brothers Big Sisters.
The 2014 Most Wanted Auction will take place on Saturday, December 6 at the Madrid Theater. This is an upbeat party with music, drinks and a lively auction with an Emcee and Auctioneer. This fast paced auction provides for great entertainment as each Most Wanted participant walks the runway while the package they secured is auctioned off. GA tickets are $40 in advance and VIP tickets are $100 or $300 for 4. VIP doors open at 6 PM, GA doors open at 6:30 and the Auction begins at 7:00 PM.
