El 23 octubre, el Centro Mattie Rhodes tendrá una cena benéfica celebrando su 120º aniversario en el hotel Kansas City Marriott Downtown, ubicado en 200 W. 12 St. en Kansas City Mo.

La cena empezará con un cóctel de recepción a las 5:30 pm, seguido de una cena a las 6:30. El ganador de siete premios Emmy y presentador del programa “What Would You Do?”, John Quiñones, será el orador principal.

“Nos emociona mucho tenerlo”, comentó Ángela Brunner, Encargada de Desarrollo de Mattie Rhodes. “Él tendrá un discurso fabuloso, nos mostrará algunos clips. Estamos felices de tenerlo”.

Durante la cena, Cathy Hiersteiner recibirá el premio al Servicio del Centro Mattie Rhodes 2014 por su dedicación a la organización.

“Por mucho tiempo, ella ha sido un gran apoyo”, dijo. “Ella formó parte de la directiva, colaboró…en múltiples comités y ha ayudado a que se expanda Mattie Rhodes. Su carrera en trabajo social es notable y ha hecho mucho por varias organizaciones no lucrativas en el área”.

El evento de este año es diferente a las celebraciones anteriores de Mattie Rhodes. Típicamente el centro organiza un almuerzo de aniversario. Este año cambió el formato del evento porque es su aniversario 120.

“Quisimos celebrarlo… (con) una cena”, dijo Brunner. “Queremos…(demostrar) lo que hemos hecho en el pasado y esperamos con entusiasmo las cosas que deseamos hacer en el futuro. Queremos expandir (nuestros) servicios en… el condado Wyandotte (Kansas), y ampliar nuestros servicios comunitarios para formar una mejor comunidad desde adentro”.

Los boletos para la celebración cuestan $100 cada uno y pueden comprarse llamando al
