Our 7th annual An Evening With the 'Rents stand-up comedy benefit will be VIRTUAL for all the world to see!
Last month, we were delighted to share with you that An Evening with the ‘Rents 2020 would not be cancelled but delightfully would be rescheduled for Friday, September 18, 2020!
The safety of our guests, volunteers and performers continues to be of utmost importance to us. ‘Rents typically gathers roughly 400 individuals and because we’re not certain how the months leading up to the event will unfold, we don’t want to take a risk that would jeopardize the health of our guests and camp family. Due to these factors, we are shifting this year’s An Evening with the ‘Rents show to a virtual performance.
Yes, it won’t be the same. But it will still be grand and will provide all ticket holders with a much deserved night of laughter and joy. Perhaps you can host a watch party in the comfort of your home--gathering with a small group of friends and loved ones. Or, perhaps you prefer to stay in your flannel PJs and cuddle up under cozy blankets to laugh the night away solo.
Here’s the best part...this year’s show will now not only be available to those able to attend in the Kansas City area but, it will now be able to be viewed by those around the globe!
If you are already a ticket holder, you will have access to the virtual event and will be sent details by email. Be sure to spread the word and encourage others to join the night of comedy by purchasing tickets HERE! The An Evening with the ‘Rents 2020 virtual show will only be available to ticket holders and will not be released at a later date.
WHEN IT ALL GOES DOWN:
Friday, September 18, 2020
show begins: 7:30 PM
WHERE TO LAUGH:
in the comfort of your home
or with a small group of friends
ABOUT THE EVENT
This is a one-of-a-kind, laughter-filled fundraiser! What makes An Evening with the 'Rents unique is that the comics are all individuals, siblings, or parents of children or adults with autism spectrum disorder. For months, they 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.

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!
