Toast to Our Towns

Celebrate Your Neighbors’ Service to Our Communities

For 25 years, the Toast to Our Towns Gala has been our opportunity to honor people and organizations who have dedicated themselves to serving Eastern Jackson County and surrounding communities. This year's Toast to Our Towns Gala will be held virtually on Saturday, September 26, 2020.

We are excited to announce our 2020 honorees: 

Broadcast from live from the stage of the Midwest Genealogy Center, this one-hour celebration of philanthropy will start at 7:00 p.m. and broadcast to more than 40 different watch parties throughout the region. Awards for Truman Heartland’s 2020 honorees will be presented from the main stage and cameras will break to 7 mayoral watch parties where the 2020 Citizens of the Year will be recognized for their outstanding philanthropic contributions.

This dynamic virtual format will allow us to celebrate and honor the people and organizations who have dedicated themselves to serving Eastern Jackson County and the surrounding communities in a setting that addresses safety concerns while still fostering community.

Gala Sponsorships Available for 2020 

This important community event celebrates the Community Foundation's 38 years of service in Eastern Jackson County and the leaders who make our communities great. We couldn’t honor our communities without the generous support of our sponsors.
