50th Annual Gala


Celebrate 50 years of MLM helping those in need throughout Kansas City!


MLM's 50th Annual Gala

For the last 50 years, Metro Lutheran Ministry has helped low-income and homeless people navigate a path towards hope, opportunity, and peace. 

The Annual Gala is MLM's largest fundraiser of the year, providing critical funds to help support programs such as the MLM food pantries, rapid re-housing and permanent supportive housing for the homeless, minor home repair, employment support services, and the MLM Christmas Store.

MLM Thanks You!

Metro Lutheran Ministry would like to thank you for attending our 50th Anniversary Gala! As you might have noticed, we were so excited celebrating our accomplishments that we forgot to ask you for a gift. Our Annual Gala is a main source of funding for many MLM programs and is a source of unrestricted dollars that fill in the gaps of the entire organization. If you have already made a gift, we graciously say thank you. 

If you have not had the opportunity, please consider financially supporting the great work and impact MLM has has on the community for 50 years. If you would like to restrict your gift, include a comment with your online donation or on the memo line.

MLM and the community thanks you for your continuous support of what we do and the people we serve each and every day. It is because of you that we are able to continue to make a difference in the lives of the individuals and families we serve!
