Stand Up For Synergy


Stand Up for Synergy

Synergy Services is proud to host the 16th Annual Stand Up for Synergy.  With your help, over $450,000 was raised for 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.

We look forward to seeing you at the 17th Annual Stand Up For Synergy on November 4, 2023.

The event kicks off with an exclusive cocktail hour, which is followed by a delicious, chef created dinner and live auction. Get your bidding cards ready for the chance to win exclusive trips, premiere tickets to events, one-of-a-kind sports memorabilia and more.

The evening culminates with an entertaining performance by 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! 

When: Saturday, November 4, 2023  | Cocktail Hours Starts at 5:15 p.m.

Where:  Argosy Casino Hotel & Spa

Schedule for the Evening: 
Cocktail Reception 5:15pm-7:00pm | Dinner 7:00pm-8:00pm
