Join us for much needed laughter at An Evening With the 'Rents!
The 9th annual An Evening With the 'Rents is Kansas City's own stand up comedy benefit. What makes this one-of-a-kind, laughter-filled benefit event unique is that the comics are all individuals or loved ones of individuals with autism who work alongside local comedians to craft their very raw life experiences into hilariously touching stories that promise to encourage and enlighten you.
Whether you have a personal connection to individuals on the autism spectrum or not, An Evening With the 'Rents is so much more than a benefit. It creates an electric atmosphere where everyone can leave their troubles at the door and experience freedom and community through laughter.
Looking forward to an evening of laughter and love!

SPONSOR THIS EVENT
With guests tuning in at the event and also through live streaming, An Evening With the 'Rents provides a wonderful opportunity for local businesses to demonstrate to the community that they value the lives of youth with autism (and appreciate the value of a good chuckle).
Should you have any questions about this fantastic opportunity, contact our Events Coordinator, Bekah Zitron via email or 816.830.7171.
We send abundant thanks to each sponsor as well as each individual that braves the stage in front of the massive audience to share his or her story—sharing the joy and laughter in both the trials and goodness experienced.
We also want to thank Keenan Stump and Matt Braun, Speech Language Pathologists from New Balloon Therapy Services for creating this brilliant event in 2014 in support of Camp Encourage. Not only do they have a wonderful sense of humor but their hearts are full of love for those we serve. Keenan and Matt's dream for An Evening With the 'Rents was for it to be a grassroots event; that those participate pass the torch, providing support and friendship along the way.
Thank you ALL for supporting the mission of Camp Encourage and those we serve!
