A Fond Farewell

Over the past 18 years, EPIC Innovative Events has been proud to help scores of Kansas City businesses, not-for-profit organizations and individuals cerate memorable special events. It has been our singular mission to help our clients achieve their strategic goals through the creation of impactful and emotionally compelling meetings, galas, conferences, fundraisers, launches and ground-breakings. Today I am sharing, EPIC is closing. Effective immediately, our parent organization, Starlight Theatre, has made a strategic choice to redirect its event services exclusively to activities that will take place only in Starlight facilities and be managed by their terrific internal team.

It has been an honor for me to work alongside truly outstanding colleagues and vendors during my tenure with EPIC and a privilege to lead the company for the past decade. I am humbled to have worked with many of this city’s most dedicated business professionals on the EPIC board of directors, and I thank them for their leadership, support and friendship. I am heartened to know that we are leaving Starlight both with extremely sound assets in place and a heightened regard within the community for having served our parent company well. I am very proud of the seamless conference management we have provided to several notable corporations, but I am most gratified by the ways in which EPIC has helped to move the dial forward and build sustainability for countless not-for-profits across our city. By implementing EPIC’s method of theatrical story-telling, and using an organization’s own mission to provide the dialogue, we’ve witnessed time and again how astoundingly generous our community is when individuals are allowed to feel an event … and not just attend it.

Each of us look forward to continuing our work as event professionals within the Kansas City community.  Should you need to reach the Starlight venue coordinator please access their website at www.kcstarlight.com
