HOAMC Performs at the Legacy of John Benefit Dinner for the Kansas Christian Home

The Heart of America Men's Chorus was invited to sing at the Legacy of John Benefit Dinner for "as well as the Summer 2015 show, "Red, White, and Cure." The patriotic songs from the summer concert were a particular success as members of the various military branches stood as the chorus sang their song.  It was an emotional experience for both the chorus and the dinner guests.

Following is a bit about the dinner held every year.

Legacy of John

Giving to Legacy of John is simple but it means the world to our residents. It shows you care about their quality of life and are willing to financially support their cause. You can support Legacy of John by attending the annual benefit dinner or by giving a gift each year.

Legacy of John purchased new specialized wheelchairs and other equipment. Recently, one woman needed a new lift chair, which is not covered by Medicaid. Without that new chair, she would be dependent on help from the nurses to sit up and down. She would have spent most of her time in bed or in a wheelchair, too proud to ask for help. Legacy of John did more than purchase the chair. It gave her hope, improved her mobility and preserved her dignity.

Quality of life involves much more than needed medical care. It involves every aspect of life, from making your own decisions to re-learning how to button your shirt or having safe, dependable transportation. Improving the lives of our residents is what Legacy of John is all about.
