Rockin’ the Crossroads

Joe Ratterman of BATS Global Markets got together with Gloria Rudd of Children’s Mercy’s Big Slick charity event.

Rock stars of business flocked to the Crossroads neighborhood of Downtown on Oct. 8 for Ingram’s annual Best of Business Kansas City and Corporate Report 100 celebration. To the tunes of the Patrick Lentz Band, they connected with business associates, forged new relationships, toasted their collective achievements, then settled in to catch the Royals’ playoff opener on the big screens brought in for the night.

Parick Lentz and his band fired up the crowd.
