Jenny Harris-Patterson began her friendship with Heartland Men’s Chorus in 2015.

It all started when she stated, “I am here to help, and I will do whatever.” She assisted with two Dinner of Notes and then was asked to chair the event. Her two-year commitment turned into a four-year commitment!  

“To me, being asked to join the board is an absolute honor. It means I can give my talents, my suggestions, and feedback to help move the chorus into the future,” says Harris-Patterson. “HMC does not disappoint with the concerts and the wonderful, meaningful messages that come with that music. To support the chorus means to support not only the members of the chorus and what this group means to them but also the wonderful music that is created for the Kansas City community.”

Jenny has loved every minute of planning, organizing, and community involvement that HMC offers her and can often be counted on for treats as she loves to bake. Jenny has worked for Saint Luke’s Health System for 19 years as the Child Care Center Director at the plaza location. Jenny is from St. Louis (Go Cards! Imos pizza is the best!) and is married to her husband, James Patterson.

Team HMCKC Remembers & Raises Money for AIDS Walk KC

HMCKC walked in the first AIDS Walk KC 33 years ago and since then we have raised tens of thousands of dollars for those in the Kansas City Area living with HIV.

Randy Hite is one HMCKC member who is walking to remember former members. “I’ll be walking with my team to remember those friends of mine that I’ve lost to AIDS. One of those friends was Robert Busby. He was in the chorus and he was a dancer and we were buddies and he would love to know that his name is on one of the memorial banners that the chorus will display during the walk. So, I walked to remember Robert and all my other friends.”

Team HMCKC is close to reaching its goal of $8,400 for the 2021 AIDS Walk KC. You can still donate to the Team’s fundraiser by June 30, 2021. Click here.
