2024 Starry Night at Starlight

The stars will be out – all of the Starry Night at Starlight stars, that is! On July 27th, a group of Kansas City’s most dynamic charitable movers and shakers will raise funds to support Starlight’s Bob Rohlf Internship Program. Partygoers will enjoy an unforgettable evening of fun, food, music, and a Broadway performance. Every donation of $100 or more includes tickets to the Saturday evening performance of one of Starlight’s Broadway shows and features a pre-show cocktail hour with delicious food stations and a lively post-show dance party.
