It will begin at 1 pm with the last DJ’s spinning until 10:45 pm. The entertainment schedule includes DJs from all over the city along with food and merchandise vendors and a silent auction.

The flyer suggests to bring lawn chairs. 

Proceeds will be donated to St. Agnes and Bishop Miege in Galvan’s name. Tickets are $20 in advance and $25 at the door. To purchase tickets contact the event orgnizer Javier Escobar at (913)558-1796 or Kerry Madrigal at (913)449-7378.
