Stand Up For Synergy


Stand Up for Synergy

Synergy Services is proud to host the 15th Annual Stand Up for Synergy. Over the past 14 years, the money raised at Stand Up for Synergy has provided thousands of hours of therapy for abused children, hundreds of nights of safe places for women fleeing domestic violence, and case management for over 1,000 homeless teens in Kansas City. This is indeed something to smile about.

The event kicks off with an exclusive cocktail hour, which is followed by a delicious, chef created dinner and live auction. In years past, this premiere auction has featured hard to find sports memorabilia, one of a kind art masterpieces created live at the event, elite vacations and a 15 year old Pappy Van Winkle Whiskey. There’s no telling what this year’s auction will have up for bid!

The evening culminates with an entertaining performance by a nationally-acclaimed comedian. Tables of four ensure there is absolutely no bad seat in the house, and the entire night gives an exclusive feel you can’t find at any other comedy club in Kansas City!
