Kansas City has never had a permanent home for an LGBT community center. LIKEME® Lighthouse-KC wants to change that one person and one dollar at a time.
Our first effort will begin with a fundraiser at Leinenkugel’s on July 9th followed by a Public Forum – Conversation with the Community on July 10, 2016 at LIKEME® Lighthouse-KC, 3911 Main Street at 2 p.m. The fundraiser will help to provide LMLKC with the financial support to maintain its current location next year while the board establishes a plan for a capital campaign to purchase a new HOME.
“The LIKEME® Lighthouse-KC board members are exercising due diligence to establish a solid business foundation to ensure sustainability for the future.” Felicia Kyle, LMLKC President, stated. “Over the last year the board of LIKEME® Lighthouse-KC has incorporated and obtained its 501(c)3 status with the IRS. In addition, basic business practices and procedures are being developed and LMLKC has installed a secure online system for giving.”
This fundraiser will be the beginning of LMLKC’s effort to provide the means to sustain its current momentum while working to develop a solid plan to build a permanent HOME.
“This is the beginning of an ultimate goal to grow with the needs of the community.” stated Felicia Kyle. “It will be the first of many steps toward sustainability and growth for future generations.“
