Russell Welsh with the 2017 Karen and Hank Herrmann Humanitarian Award Honorary Sponsor Karen and Hank Herrmann Stabilizing Sponsor Polsinelli Sustaining Sponsor Wadell and Reed Special Sponsor Spirit of the Heart Fund Event Co-Chairs Rohsann Parris and Jeff Dobbs For 28 years, Community LINC has transformed lives for over 4,000 families with nearly 9,000 children. These families were once homeless and hopeless. With your help, we have changed their lives. Rent parties originated in 1920s Harlem in the heart of New York City. Tenants hired a musician or band to play for the neighborhood or building and then passed the hat to raise money for their rent. Naming our signature fundraising event in celebration of the rent parties is a perfect fit for Community LINC. We gather at the Rent Party to celebrate life in the heart of Kansas City and pay the rent for the families we serve as they transition from homelessness into self-sufficiency. We hope you will join us in October for another night of fun and philanthropy to change lives and end homelessness.
