GATHER 'ROUND THE FIRE

Vox Theatre

1405 Southwest Blvd., Kansas City, KS

At this year’s S’Mores & Pours event, we invite you to share in an evening of camp stories from parents, campers and volunteers as we celebrate 10 years of Camp Encourage! You won’t want to miss our cocktail hour — mix and mingle while sampling spirits from J. Rieger and delightful beer from Crane Brewing. Peruse our fabulous silent auction items and enjoy the ease of mobile bidding so you can get back to connecting with fellow “campers” over delicious appetizers. When it’s time to sit down and gather ‘round the campfire, you’ll enjoy dining on local and in-season fare capped off by, of course, s’mores. Make sure to step into the Airstream Photo Booth to commemorate the night. We can’t wait to see you there!
