Ages of Excellence

Benefiting The Village Shalom Financial Assistance Program

David Gergen takes the stage at the 2018 Ages of Excellence event.


November 14, 2018, just one week after the mid-term elections, David Gergen, senior political analyst for CNN and advisor to four U.S. presidents on both sides of the party line: Nixon, Ford, Reagan and Clinton, was the featured speaker at Village Shalom’s 2018 Ages of Excellence event.  

Over 370 friends, family and supporters gathered at the InterContinental Kansas City at the Plaza to celebrate community and raise funds for the Village Shalom Financial Assistance Program which benefits the 1 in 4 residents on our main campus who have exhausted their financial resources and rely on the community for vital care and services.  The Financial Assistance Program provides support totaling $1.5 million annually.  

Special thanks to event co-chairs Allison Berey and Roshann Parris, and interview moderator Colleen McCain Nelson, Vice President and Editorial Page Editor of The Kansas City Star for a wonderfully successful evening.
