TREADS & THREADS

Treads & ThreadsUnder the stars and inside the oval at Kansas Speedway, the annual black-tie gala to benefit cancer patient care draws thousands of party-goers each September. The Treads & Threads experience includes a gourmet feast from area restaurants, a concert by a headline entertainer, spectacular fireworks and a dance floor that's packed 'til midnight! Since 2002, the gala has raised more than $11.5 million for patient care at The University of Kansas Cancer Center.
