We are both excited and sorry to say that the event is SOLD OUT! 

It's an evening full of inspiration and amazing stories as we present 20 individuals with the Kindest Kansas Citian award and honor them, along with the students that nominated them. Joining these remarkable folks in the spotlight are our honorary stars, Jamie Cummings and John Isenberg, who we will celebrate for the example of kindness and generosity they are known for in our community. Finally, we will present Prairie Star Elementary with the Rita Blitt Kindest School award.

Proceeds from the event benefit our STOP Violence program, which teaches healthy relationship skills and empowers young people to overcome bullying and teen dating violence.
