The best of Kansas City journalism will be on display June 22 when the Kansas City Press Club hosts this year’s Heart of America Awards banquet at the Grand Street Cafe. Reservations can be made until June 1.
The new venue – previous banquets had been held at the downtown Marriott’s Muehlebach ballroom – means cheaper tickets: $35 per person.
More details from the Press Club:
The awards will be presented this year at the Grand St. Café at 4740 Grand Ave, Kansas City, Missouri. This new location is conveniently located just east of the Country Club Plaza.
Parking is available just west of the Grand St. Cafe, south of Winsteads on 47th. See maps. Drinks will be served at a cash bar beginning at noon, with the lunch banquet beginning at 12:30. Awards finalists will be notified by email in May that they will be receiving an award, with the specific places announced at the banquet.
The cost this year is only $35 per person (tax deductible).
In addition to the category awards, the Press Club will present its Journalist of the Year and Joe McGuff Lifetime Achievement awards.
