Stacey has been involved with BLOOM since it began. A self-proclaimed “Jacqueline of all Trades,” she spends her non-BLOOM time editing, resume writing, and tutoring. She is a professional sommelier and executes several wine events each year. Her father, Harry Lukas, has been a long-standing supporter of BLOOM through liquor donations from his company, Lukas Liquors. A single mom of a vivacious five-year-old, Stacey feels blessed to be able to afford healthcare but recognizes how, under different circumstances, her need for a place like the Kansas City CARE Clinic could exist. Understanding that, makes supporting BLOOM meaningful to her. There is no better way, in her opinion, to affect change in healthcare in KC, then to support the Clinic. On a lighter note, regarding her BLOOM history, she says, “I have had two BLOOMS on my birthday (which I share with my late friend, Mark Dreiling), been pregnant at BLOOM, and been dumped at BLOOM. If that’s not commitment, I don’t know what is!” Read More
By day, Bernard is the Business Operations Manager for Hallmark's Union Hill Photography Studio. By night, he is a hobby baker. As a single parent of young kids, it was challenging to find the time to volunteer after work hours, but baking allowed Bernard to be philanthropic. Since the first BLOOM party, he’s baked and donated over 1,000 dozen themed cookies for BLOOM. Why BLOOM? He is a champion of providing care for the underserved in the community, and greatly admires those who volunteer at the Kansas City CARE Clinic. About BLOOM, Bernard says “While BLOOM is a lot of work - the volunteer committee is awesome and talented, and the development support from the Clinic is unparalleled. I am so proud to be part of one of the premier events in Kansas City!” Read More
Katie Campbell has had the pleasure over the last 6 years to be involved with BLOOM. While everyone knows that the party itself is a not-to-be missed event every year in Kansas City, the thing that is the most amazing about it is what the monies raised does to support the needs of the KC CARE Clinic and Kansas Citians. Katie is the associate principal at Monticello Trails Middle School in Shawnee, Kansas. She and her husband, Jared, live downtown with their two dogs, Lucca and Lucy. In her free time, she loves volunteering for Hello Art, eating and shopping local, spending time with friends, and binging on Netflix Original Series. Read More
Chadwick is proud to join the BLOOM 2015 leadership team! He officially joined the committee leading the Experience subcommittee with BLOOM SpeaksEasy, but has supported the event from first blossom.

Chadwick has deep roots in the community and has co-chaired many events large and small including Truman Medical Center's Fashion for a Cause. He is past editor of KC Magazine and Kansas City Home Design. Currently he sits on the board of the AIDS Service Foundation of Greater Kansas City and is co-founder of the Millennial League. He is owner of Chadwick Brooks Design and Creative Production, co-producer of Late Night Theatre, and a self-proclaimed “Creative Hustler.” When asked what to expect for BLOOM 2015, “Fasten your seatbelts, it's going to be a wild BLOOM!” Read More

The Kansas City CARE Clinic is a private 501(c)(3) organization that was founded in 1971 by a group of concerned citizens from all walks of life in Kansas City.
The mission of the Clinic is to promote health and wellness by providing quality services to those without access to basic care. As the face of healthcare continues to change so, too, will the Clinic continue to adapt as it has for over 40 years.
