Event description

Description

Are you passionate about equal rights for youth and young adults with developmental disabilities?

Did you know 75% of individuals with cognitive disabilities living in the KC Metro area experience chronic unemployment? Current laws allow for a person with developmental disabilities to be paid less than minimum wage, in some case less than $1.00 per hour? And only a mere 10% of individuals are given the opportunity to engage in community based employment.

With statistics like that it is easy to see why the youth and young adults with developmental disabilities living in our community are faced with a future of poverty, dependence on social services and isolation from their community.

You can help change that.

Join the Summit Future Foundation for our first annual Capture the Future Charity Gala, where we bring together self advocates, parent advocates, loved ones, and anyone committed to making a positive change for those with developmental disabilities to change the future of employment opportunities in the Kansas City Metro area.

This will be an unforgettable night of food, fun and activism including:
Open Bar of Beer and Wine
Heavy Horderves
Silent Auction and Raffle
Networking with other community members interested in disability workplace inclusion.


Proceeds of event are used to fund participant scholarships and other capacity building efforts.
