We were overwhelmed by the incredible turnout at this year’s annual FarmFest! Our heartfelt thanks go out to the fantastic Kansas City community that came together to support our mission, making this event truly unforgettable. On Sunday September 10th, we had the pleasure of welcoming over 350 guests, both new and familiar faces to the farm.
A special shoutout goes to our phenomenal sponsors, Cargill, Seaboard Foods, The Kauffman Foundation, Fike Corporation, United HealthCare, G3 Solar, and Matthew Norris who played a vital role in making Farm Fest 2023 the biggest event of the year! Your support means the world to us.
As anyone who’s attended FarmFest knows, it’s not just about the farm; it’s about the food too! Our heartfelt thanks go out to our dedicated food vendor partners, including Dispatch Pizza, Deez Nachos, The Prospect KC, Taste Island Grill, Pot Pie KC, Baked by Bobbi, the BoysGrow culinary team, and Torn Label Brewing Co. Also, a big thanks to Tito’s Vodka for generously providing in-kind drinks.
Through our collective efforts, we raised nearly $50,000, and that’s a remarkable testament to the generosity of our community and the impact of BoysGrow. Thank you for helping us make a difference!
Finally thank you to the BoysGrow staff [John, Tariq, Xochitl, Nicolas, Russ, Ethan, Dan] and FarmFest committee members [Daniel, Olivia, Xochitl, Tariq, John] that helped us organize another successful event and volunteers from Commerce Bank, and United Healthcare that helped us on the days leading up to the event.
