Support the community by becoming a Presenting Sponsor. Proceeds from this fundraising event will go directly to providing resources for educational, cultural and recreational activities, as well as projects that might not otherwise be provided through tax dollars to enrich the lives of Leawood residents and the local community.


Arti Gras proceeds will go to the Leawood Foundation to fund a new
Inclusive Playground for City Park and other 2017 project priorities or to the
Leawood Stage Company "Mics for Mike Fund".


Planned improvements to the City Park Playground will include a new play surface to improve safety and inclusive playground structures that accommodate those with intellectual and physical disabilities. Inclusive playgrounds offer alternatives for people at all levels of ability and challenge them at their own developmental stages.
