Western Missouri Medical Center Foundation is asking people to save the date for their first ever Cirque du Soiree event on Thursday night July 22.

The event, which benefits Western Missouri Medical Center, is being billed as "A wildly fun and unforgettable evening." WMMC Foundation says the one of a kind event will include live entertainers, performance artists and decadent hors d’oeuvres.

There's even an option to purchase unlimited drinks wristbands. Which seems like an odd thing to offer at an event benefiting a major health care provider. But sometimes I guess you have to just say what the heck.

The event seems to be a replacement for the traditional Fire & Ice gala held by the foundation, which was cancelled this past winter due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Tickets are $60 per ticket, or $100 for couples. The unlimited drink wristband is also for sale for $50 per band. The event is being held at Knob Hill Barn from 6 to 10 p.m.

The foundation has sponsorships of the event available. If you're interested in a sponsorship you can call Jennie Snapp at (660) 262-7464. The group is also looking for donations for their silent auction. If you'd like to donate, you can pledge your donation here.

LOOK: See how much gasoline cost the year you started driving

To find out more about how has the price of gas changed throughout the years, Stacker ran the numbers on the cost of a gallon of gasoline for each of the last 84 years. Using data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (released in April 2020), we analyzed the average price for a gallon of unleaded regular gasoline from 1976 to 2020 along with the Consumer Price Index (CPI) for unleaded regular gasoline from 1937 to 1976, including the absolute and inflation-adjusted prices for each year.

Read on to explore the cost of gas over time and rediscover just how much a gallon was when you first started driving.
