Have a free creme brulee on Sunday in memory of Kerry Layton

  • Raise a ramekin of creme brulee in honor of the late Kerry Layton this Sunday.

Kerry Layton loved creme brulee - and music. The longtime associate at Kansas City's VPR Creative Group had also been a bass player before his death from leukemia at age 53 in 2007. Six years ago, Layton's former boss, Curtis Pickering, founder of VPR Creative Group, joined forces with restaurateur Kevin Timmons, co-owner of Wil Jenny's restaurant at 6700 West 135th Street in Leawood, to create a fund-raising event in Layton's honor. This Sunday, from 2 to 5 p.m., a group of local musicians will host a jam session at Wil Jenny's, and the restaurant will serve free creme brulee.

The music and the creme brulee - vanilla bean, double chocolate and a flavor yet-to-be-determined - are free during the three-hour event, but contributions are encouraged for the Kerry Layton Scholarship Fund, part of the Blue Valley Educational Foundation, which awards a scholarship each year in Kerry's memory.

The winner of the Kerry Layton Scholarship will be present on Sunday. The music scholarship goes to one student in the Blue Valley School District each year.
