Hope for the Future 2021

Cross-Lines Announces Changes to 2021 Gala for Hope Plans

We are busy working on our annual fundraising event for 2021! Because of uncertainty about gathering together for a traditional indoor Gala during the pandemic, we decided to take this event in a different direction this year and chose a location where we can still come together: outdoors and socially distanced at KCK’s historic Boulevard Drive-In Theater!

On September 30th, we are excited to present Hope for the Future, which in addition to a brief program, will include a silent and live auction in support of Cross-Lines’ mission and programs. After the program, we will be screening Back to the Future on the theater’s gigantic 4K screen! There will be 80s music playing, first-class food trucks for dining and a variety of beverages available as well. We hope you join us for this super-fun 80’s themed and family-friendly event!

The venue offers plenty of space and all cars will be spaced at least 10 feet apart.

Not ready to attend in person? Not to worry! All auction items will be bid on virtually (by those in attendance and at home) and the night’s program will be available for viewing online immediately following the program.

How YOU can help us: We need items for our auctions! If you would like to support Cross-Lines by donating items to the silent or live auction, please contact Kelly Gough at for more information.

Sponsorships: We will have new and unique sponsorship levels this year! Sponsors are vitally important to reaching our fundraising goal. If you/your company or someone you know is interested in sponsoring this super fun and unique event, please contact Kelley Carpenter at
