KC Rocks

About KC Rocks

It's amazing what good people can do when they get together for a great cause. And after the last year we need a night like this!!!

That's the idea behind KC Rocks, a benefit for Make-A-Wish® Missouri & Kansas.

The power of positivity, community and friendship is what we hope to capture through a fun filled night of music at KC Rocks 2021. The past year has been trying, summer will be here, people are vaccinated and it’s time to come together again. This inaugural year of KC Rocks was going to be held in April 2020 because it marked the beginning of spring which symbolizes love, hope, youth, growth…and really fun parties….But we took our time, did the right thing, got vaccinated and moved it to June 18th, 2021!!!

Make-A-Wish® Missouri & Kansas grants over 450 wishes a year and our hope is to grant even more in 2021/2022. A wish come true helps children feel stronger, more energetic, more willing and able to battle their critical illness. For many, the wish marks a turning point in the fight against their illnesses. Doctors, nurses and other health professionals say, the wish experience works in concert with medicine to make their patients feel better emotionally and even physically. That is why wishes matter. That is why we grant wishes.


About Make-A-Wish

A wish experience can be a game-changer for a child with a critical illness.

This one belief guides us in everything we do at Make-A-Wish®. It inspires us to grant wishes that change the lives of the kids we serve. It compels us to be creative in exceeding the expectations of every wish kid. It drives us to make our donated resources go as far as possible.

Wishes are more than just a nice thing. And they are far more than gifts, or singular events in time. Wishes impact everyone involved - wish kids, volunteers, donors, sponsors, medical professionals and communities. The impact varies. For wish kids, just the act of making their wish come true can give them the courage to comply with their medical treatments. Parents might finally feel like they can be optimistic. And still others might realize all they have to offer the world through volunteer work or philanthropy.

Whatever the odds, whatever the obstacles...wishes find a way to make the world better.
