Under the stars and inside the oval at Kansas Speedway, The University of Kansas Health System’s Treads & Threads is an annual black-tie gala benefiting cancer patient care. The Treads & Threads experience includes incredible cuisine from many of Kansas City’s finest restaurants and dessert specialists, signature cocktails and specialty drinks, an exclusive concert by a headline entertainer, spectacular fireworks and a dance floor that's packed 'til midnight! The consistently sold-out event draws crowds of more than 4,000 partygoers each September.
Behind the fun and glamour, Treads & Threads is a party with a purpose. Since 2002, Treads & Threads sponsors, patrons and guests have contributed more than $15.2 million to further expand and improve cancer care at The University of Kansas Cancer Center.
