Every year, the Rock Chalk Roundball Classic brings together former KU basketball players and local celebrities to raise money for kids fighting cancer.
The Rock Chalk Roundball Classic has helped more than 20 families to date. We hope through expanded awareness, player participation, and personal donations, we can continue to grow and exceed our goals for years to come.
Alex is the Treasurer and has been involved since 2009. She enjoys working with the families, organizing media days where the kids can focus on being kids for a day. She also helps connect business to the Roundball event to help raise funds for these families. If you're interested in getting involved, let us know!
The Blue Valley Educational Foundation empowers teachers to go beyond traditional classroom limits to enable our students to innovate, lead, and, most importantly, learn for their futures.
Our mission is simple: enrich educational excellence. We accomplish this through the generosity of our community partners that support our outreach, financial development, and ongoing funding of extraordinary educational programs.
Through the grants that we award, we provide the support needed for our teachers and staff to personalize their approach to teaching each student, maximizing outcomes for each and every child in our district. We proudly partner across all parts of our community to ensure that the students in our community have access to all the support they need to be successful.
During the long and colorful existence of the Elms Hotel & Spa, the celebrated property has nurtured a rich and vibrant history. Not only has The Elms established itself as a sought-after destination for over 125 years, but it has also been a true survivor against all odds.
Though The Elms brand is over a century old, the building standing today has just reached the 100-year mark. Fires claimed two earlier incarnations of the structure, but, each time, The Elms rose from the ashes—literally—and was rebuilt into an even grander place.
