An evening of celebration benefitting Kansas City children and families in need.


We are so grateful for donors, sponsors, and volunteers who make the work of HappyBottoms possible. Your generosity helps support 11,500 babies by giving families access to diapers.

Please join in this year's Attitude of Gratitude event to share food, drinks and spirited giving through live and silent auctions.
