Inspiration Night

Overview

Inspiration Night unites philanthropists and visionaries in support of ComKids. The highlight of this intimate gala is an engaging keynote message that celebrates the theme of Inspiration.

In the spring of 2013, Board Member Amie Munk attended Inspiration Day, the year-end celebration for the ComKids students who have successfully completed the first year of the Program to acknowledge their achievements and the successful futures that lie ahead for them. Amie was incredibly moved and motivated to share her experience and the excitement of the day with others. The idea of Inspiration Night was born.

Co-chaired by Amie Munk and Bryden Richardson and supported by committee members Sarah Paterson, Marsha Baker and G. Scott Paterson, the inaugural event took place in 2013 and was such a success that it became an annual event.
