Soroptimist International of Joplin invites the community to laugh for a good cause — 40 years of Camp Soroptimist!
Join them on Saturday, April 6 for Comedy for Camp, an annual, casual, fun-filled evening of gift card grabs, silent and live auctions, clean comedy, and, of course, lots of laughs!
Soroptimist International of Joplin’s largest service project is a week-long annual summer camp for foster children. This year marks 40 years since Camp Soroptimist began! Soroptimist members plan all the camp activities and work in conjunction with the Department of Social Services to identify foster children between the ages of eight and 14 who could benefit from the experience. Many of the children comment that it is the most fun thing they do all summer and look forward to coming back!
This year’s event will be hosted at the Harry M. Cornell Arts & Entertainment Complex and features a new tiered ticket pricing, ranging from $35 to $75 per person. The facility will open at 5:30 pm, theater doors will open at 6:30 pm, and the show begins at 7:00 pm.
A variety of drinks and snacks will be available for purchase at concessions in the lobby.
Entertainment for the evening will feature Chad Thornsberry and Greg Hahn.
