Burt Appleby. Michele Paver. Two very selfless people who’ve dedicated their professional lives to helping others. Michele an educator. She’s been teaching special needs elementary children for over 15 years. Burt is an EMT. He spends his days answering calls from those in crisis and saving the lives of so many in our community. We appreciate the great service they both provide and love them for it. Now they need our help. Michele has been diagnosed with stage 3B cervical cancer and is currently enduring 8 weeks of chemotherapy and radiation treatments.
Burt choreographed a surprise proposal to Michele in New York City last year. He told her they were going to Branson but secretly had friends and relative awaiting them in the Big Apple! After a flight cancellation, and a couple other complications, he ended up proposing at the airport, but the short trip was still very memorable. Burt and Michele are to be married in New Orleans on June 6, 2015. That’s where we come in. We want to do everything possible to get the bride-to-be down the aisle CANCER FREE!!!

Once the party is over join us on the second floor to pop bottles all night long!
It’s been 29 years since we’ve seen a MLB playoff win, and there’s just something in the air here in Kansas City. No, the smell of tasty BBQ isn’t what I’m talking about either. Last night our hometown Chiefs showed the country what our city is about by putting a whopping 41 – 14 on the New England Patriots for Monday Night Football. Something magical is happening here in the midwest, and the loyal Kansas City fans couldn’t be more excited.
Some come join us tonight #OnTheDeck for Tuesday Takeover’s with this weeks crew:
