What is the Kansas City
Ugly Christmas Sweater Day?
Ugly Christmas Sweater Day was created to support Operation Breakthrough’s mission to aid children living in poverty in Kansas City’s urban core. This Day, officially proclaimed by Kansas City Mayor Sly James, encourages local residents, organizations and businesses to donate food, toys, money, time, and cheer during this holiday season.
Ugly Christmas Sweater Day coincides with the 12th Annual Ugly Christmas Sweater Party being held at Tower Tavern on December 9, 2016. All proceeds will directly benefit Operation Breakthrough. We encourage you to don your finest, most festive ugly apparel and join us in supporting this local cause. In addition to attending the closing party at Tower Tavern, local businesses, organizations, retailers, and restaurants–large or small–may pick and choose from various options to help support Operation Breakthrough in their own unique way.
