What do you get when you combine Kansas City history, an iconic DC3 airplane and deliciously delectable coffee? The answer is easy to Kansas City natives and those who know the Bean Baron himself, Danny O’Neill. Danny has been a vital part to Kansas City culture since 1993 when he started The Roasterie in the basement of his Brookside home, and will once again be “flying high” over Kansas City as The National MS Society honors the Bean Baron during the 2013 Dinner of Champions on Tuesday, September 17.
Danny will receive the Hope Award, the National Multiple Sclerosis Societies highest honor, for his tireless philanthropic efforts throughout the Kansas City area, “We are thrilled to honor Danny O’Neill at the MS Society’s Dinner of Champions. The Hope Award is given to someone who exhibits vision, civic volunteerism and dedicated commitment to philanthropic and community service. Danny O’Neill exemplifies those qualities in the way that he has built his business and given back to the communities in which he works. The Roasterie has been a long-time partner and supporter of the MS Society and we are looking forward to acknowledging his many contributions to the MS Society and the Kansas City community,” said Kay Julian, President of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society.
Tickets and sponsorship opportunities for Dinner of Champions are now available through the National MS Society for an evening of socializing, dinner and a live auction as well as the opportunity to raise funds for over 55,000 individuals and their families living with multiple sclerosis in western Missouri, Kansas and Nebraska.
