The Auto Show Sneak Peek Happy Hour


Press Release

(February 17, 2011) Kansas City’s most fun young professionals are revving up our engines to help Kansas City kids!
Young Variety wants to take you on a wild ride… inside the 2011 Kansas City Auto Show.  We’ve planned a Sneak Peek Happy Hour on Wednesday, March 2nd — and even if you don’t know a fan belt from a spark plug…you’ll want to be there!
The party fires up at 5pm with Kansas City’s DJ Eric Coomes spinning beats on “The Bridge” at Bartle Hall until 8pm.  Just buy a $15 Young Variety ticket at the door (no pre-sale this time…sorry to our over-organized peeps).  Your Young Variety ticket grants you access to The Auto Show showroom floor, our Young Variety Happy Hour on “The Bridge”, and puts three drink tickets (beer and wine) in your hand.
We’re confident that’s all you need to know to set your GPS to Bartle Hall on Wednesday night.  If not… we’ll remind you all the money Young Variety raises helps Kansas City kids get their own set of wheels: adaptive wheelchairs and bicycles that can make their lives much easier….and we don’t like to toot our own horns, but last year we raised nearly $20,000 for KC-area kids!
And if a party wasn’t enough, on Saturday, March 5th at 2pm on The Auto Show main stage, the Auto Dealers Association will present Variety with two adaptive bicycles. These hot wheels are worth about $3,500 each… but priceless to the kids who’ll get to be just like their friends.
So hop in, buckle up and get ready for another fun night with Young Variety!
