Join Kansas City Young Professionals, presented by SocialHeart, for our monthly networking happy hour taking place under the beautiful Plaza Lights at Kendra Scott, located at 412 Nichols Road, KCMO, in the heart of the Country Club Plaza. The December happy hour is on Wednesday, December 6th, from 5:00 pm – 7:00 pm. As an official “Kendra Gives Back Party,” 20% of Kendra Scott sales during the event will benefit SocialHeart.
A $10 TICKET IS REQUIRED and will provide admittance to Kendra Scott, complimentary wine, and appetizers from Cooper’s Hawk Winery & Restaurant and support of SocialHeart’s featured charity of the month, Friends Of Hale Cook. And because we’ll be in the holiday spirit, after the event, all KCYP guests are encouraged to head up the hill to Cooper’s Hawk Winery & Restaurant to enjoy a glass of wine and continued networking.
Friends Of Hale Cook started in Fall 2010 as a result of several community members coming together to ensure Hale Cook Elementary School would reopen by Kansas City Public Schools, a vision which became a reality in Fall 2013. Friends of Hale Cook continues work to support the growing school and ensure ongoing investment in the students, education, and community through civic engagement. Their current goals are to increase diverse enrollment, create an avenue for parents to connect to organize and share ideas, provide a Volunteer Coordinator position for the school monitor and help the school meet academic, attendance, behavior, and satisfaction goals. Friends Of Hale Cook also work to build community awareness across sister elementary schools to ensure student success feeding into a KCPS middle school.
SocialHeart is a 100% volunteer managed 501(c)(3) organization with a goal of creating a better community by supporting other local non-profits through hosting unique fundraising events and providing social media, marketing promotions and volunteer support directly to the non-profit.
