Our 27th annual Comics for Kids event was an experience like we have never experienced before! Attendees enjoyed 10 days of entertainment including funny jokes told by Club Members, inspiring stories, and moving performances from Club Alumni! The community came together virtually to celebrate and support the kids and teens of Monterey County, raising critical funds that advance our mission.
To our event sponsors, donors, and advocates who made this virtual experience a success, we thank you! Together we ensure that the youth of Monterey County can achieve Great Futures!
With Thanks to Our Sponsors
