Panda Express Hits a Fundraising High
Panda Express has an unyielding commitment to CMN and, in just a very short period, they have quickly demonstrated that their fundraising potential is limitless. 2018 was no exception, raising an astounding $196,960 from just 19 locations in the Greater Kansas City community. This is an unbelievable $43,000 increase over the prior year! They have now become our second highest fundraising partner and we couldn't be more grateful. While every employee at every location had a hand in making this total possible, we wanted to recognize the top 5 Panda Express locations who had the highest fundraising totals.
- Shawnee: Shawnee Mission Parkway - $15,598.30
- Prairie Village: 79th and Stateline - $15,065.67
- Olathe: K7 and Santa Fe - $14,488.11
- Overland Park: Deer Creek Shoppes - $13,841.77
- Kansas City, Kansas: Stadium Drive -$12,508.88
Thank you, Panda Express! We can't wait to see what 2019 brings!

Your Dollars Are Making Miracles
2018 was a record-breaking year in fundraising for Children's Miracle Network at KU Medical Center. Through the support of our local partners and donors, we are able to provide funds to support pediatric initiatives taking place at both KU Medical Center and at The University of Kansas Health System.
Here are a few highlights of what CMN fundraising has helped support in the last year:
Research initiatives, including one focused on the Girls Night Out program, which focuses on the development of social skills in girls diagnosed with autism and other developmental disorders.
Educational and Advocacy programs, including Parents as Teachers and KU Kids Healing Place, which is our pediatric palliative care program designed to provide the next step in care for youngsters with a chronic or life-limiting diagnosis.
Equipment purchases, including an echocardiogram machine for the pediatric unit and Angel Eye cameras for the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit that enables parents and loved ones to see their baby even when they can't physically be at the hospital.
Charitable Care to families - assisting with the cost of medical expenses for families who are in need.
Happy Bottoms program - assisting families in need with diapers for their little ones through the Happy Bottoms diaper bank.
These programs and more are made possible thanks to the generosity of the Kansas City community. We couldn't do it without your help - thank you!
