I love Kansas City and we know how to pack our weekends full of cool events. Every once in a while an event climbs to the top of the pile and demands attention, one of those events is happening this weekend. It’s an inaugural event and fashion show called ReVision, happening this Saturday, October 12. It sounds like the foundation for another great and unique KC event and it’s all happening to give hope and help to the homeless.
A couple weeks ago Maker City KC contributor, Bob Martin, wrote a feature about ScrapsKC. It was my introduction to this amazing organization. They are Kansas City’s first creative reuse center that helps artists and also helps the homeless. Their non-profit store is located at 3269 Roanoke Road and they are an exercise in social entrepreneurism that repurposes donated art supplies and found objects and sells them to provide hope for the homeless.
Scraps KC operates on the funds generated by sales, grants and donations, but more is needed to support its growth. To that end, the facility is presenting its inaugural ReVision Fashion Show from 5 to 9 p.m. on Saturday, October 12. Tickets are available HERE and start at $20.
