Events

When you support Holiday Mart, C3KC and Take Five, our fundraising events, you are strengthening our community, not just today, but for years to come. Our organization, unlike any other in the Kansas City community, is dedicated to training future leaders. We do this through our cutting-edge programming and volunteer opportunities.

C3KC – Spark Change for a Better Kansas City

C3KC is a conference that fosters collaboration between stakeholders in civic, corporate and community sectors to spark change for a better Kansas City.

Take Five

Take Five, the JLKCMO’s premier cocktail party, features a $5,000 cash giveaway, exclusive prize packages, live music, specialty libations and local culinary favorites. It’s one of the “can’t miss” social events of the year.

Holiday Mart

Our largest fundraiser is an upscale shopping extravaganza that has been a fall tradition for 30 years. It features more than 200 specialty retailers from across the country and over 20,000 shoppers annually at Bartle Hall. Holiday Mart has helped to raise nearly $11 million for Kansas City community projects and the JLKCMO’s mission. You can support Holiday Mart by attending, inviting family and friends, and /or donating to Holiday Mart.
