The MCC Foundation raised tens of thousands of dollars for student scholarships and campus projects on Sunday at the 2013 Five Star Gala, which honored the Lamar Hunt family for their significant contributions to shaping Kansas City.

Net figures are still being calculated but the event grossed over $170,000.
