Kansas City, May 29, 2013 – Bank of Kansas City is celebrating the grand opening of its new banking center in Lee’s Summit, 1710 N.E. Douglas St., on Thursday, May 30 from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Bank clients and neighbors are invited to stop by to see the new location and join in the festivities of the day, including special promotions and giveaways. A ceremonial ribbon cutting will be held at 10 a.m. Attendees will include Lee’s Summit Mayor Randy Rhoads, representatives with Lee’s Summit Chamber, and bank leadership.

As part of the ribbon cutting, Bank of Kansas City will present a donation to Hope House, a nonprofit organization that provides shelter and comprehensive services to survivors of domestic violence in the Kansas City metro area. MaryAnne Metheny, chief executive officer of Hope House, will accept the donation on the organization’s behalf.
