Keeping our community’s safety and social distancing at the forefront of our mind, the finale of our Annual Fundraiser - KC SuperStar Finals, will be virtual this year.
Everyone is welcome to watch from home as the top 10 finalists compete for "the" Edward + Ellen Rose KC SuperStar Scholarship for $10,000! In addition, KC SuperStar provides over $12,000 in scholarships to the 10 finalists who have made it through our high school, "American Idol" like competition.
This year we anticipate a greater need for financial assistance as our members and community face unemployment and other hardships due to Covid-19. The J has a projected loss of over $3.5 million in revenue as a result of being closed for 2 months, as well as reduced programming. Our goal is to raise $1,000,000 so that we do not have to pull from our endowment, and our wonderful J Staff can be retained without any further cuts in compensation. For The J to remain open and active means we can provide vital programs and services to our community, especially at a time like this when it is most needed. Once you donate, you get the added bonus of helping us select this years winner by voting via cell phones. Next year, when it is safe to gather, it is our hope to have a live event. Thank you for your support, as it means so much to our community, the KC SuperStar finalists, and The J.
