About Our Auction
Midwest Music Foundation (MMF) is a nonprofit organization committed to connecting musicians in the greater Kansas City area with essential health care resources. On Saturday, Nov. 7, we present our 13th annual Apocalypse Meow benefit concert. The online auction will run November 1 through November 28. All proceeds from the event will go to Abby's Fund for Musicians' Health Care.
In 2008, local musician Abigail Henderson faced daunting financial hurdles after being diagnosed with breast cancer. Friends and fellow musicians rallied to her side, holding the first Apocalypse Meow concert to cover her medical expenses. To pay this forward to her local community, Abigail co-founded MMF. After she passed away in 2013, MMF established Abby’s Fund For Musicians’ Health Care, which has given out more than $240,000 in health care grants to musicians in need.

About Midwest Music Foundation
Midwest Music Foundation unites and empowers the Kansas City area music community by providing health care assistance, education and career development, events and resources.
Our annual benefit concert, Apocalypse Meow, was founded in response to Kansas City musician Abigail Henderson’s cancer diagnosis, which prompted her friends and fellow musicians to raise money for her healthcare expenses. The first concert marked the birth of the Midwest Music Foundation, an organization dedicated to supporting musicians who lack proper access to health care. The event features live performances by notable Kansas City-area bands as a donation of their time and talents to their community; local businesses and artisans donate products and services to the event for auction. All monies raised during Apocalypse Meow go directly to Abby’s Fund for Musician’s Health Care
