For the past 4 years, New Reflection Foundation has hosted the Unity Ball to celebrate the year’s accomplishments by honoring students, acknowledging partners, and hosting motivational leaders who support vocational and technical training as a viable pathway to a better life.

Over 1,500 students have graduated from the New Reflections Technical Institute and gone on to purchase homes, start businesses, and obtain new careers with higher pay. That’s an actual ripple effect on the community – and we couldn’t do it without you!

Join us on December 3, 2022 at 7:00pm as we celebrate unity and success! Enjoy a live band, dancing, cash bar, community award presentation, student acknowledgments, and guest speakers.

Our host hotel is Courtyard by Marriott Kansas City at Briarcliff. Located at 4000 N.
