Grand Slam Gala is the Providence Saint John Foundation’s largest fundraising event to help provide for the health needs of patients unable to pay for the services they receive at Providence Medical Center and Saint John Hospital.  Funds from the Gala also allow a multitude of life-enhancing projects for the benefit of Wyandotte, Leavenworth, and surrounding counties.

This year’s Gala will be held at CommunityAmerica Ballpark, giving all those in attendance a fun and creative way to experience this great event.  The building will be transformed from your favorite, intimate, and fan-friendly ballpark into an exciting and versatile special event venue.  From the green-carpeted walkway and dance floor at home plate, to specialty bars and hospitality areas in the suites and dugouts; come out and enjoy a side of CommunityAmerica Ballpark you’ve never seen!

The MVP reception begins at 6:00 p.m. and the Gala starts at 7:30.  Traditional black-tie apparel or “creative” cocktail attire will be allowed.  Feel free to dress your best, or break out the ball caps and jerseys and get creative.
