2020 Power of Each One

"Deconstructed Gala"

For the last 48 years, Metro Lutheran Ministry has helped low-income and homeless people navigate a path towards hope, opportunity, and peace. 

The Power of Each One 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.

Event Description
You know how in some restaurants they serve a Deconstructed "Whatever" (like a taco… all the parts are on the plate but it’s just not put together like a taco). If it’s really fancy, I’m told they might make you eat that taco in segments…first course - fancy lettuce, tomato, and corn salsa; second course - flour deep dish tortilla covered in a blend of melted cheeses, caramelized onions, and guacamole; third course - beef medallion covered in a chipotle sour cream glaze and mango salsa, all served with a margarita in an actual goldfish bowl!

Well we’re going fancy this year and serving a Deconstructed Gala and your appetizer course is coming up next week! The best part is that you don’t have to leave your office, your home, or wherever to attend. And you don’t even have to go at a specific time. Next week I’ll email you the first course and you can gobble it up whenever you want. But you do need to open the package (aka click on the link) or you won’t be able to appreciate the amazing courses we have prepared for you.

Please pronounce Deconstructed Gala in a French accent with a sideways raised eyebrow glance to maximize just how exotic this event is.

We're excited!  So bon appétit!


Power of Each One would not be possible without the generous support of MLM's gala sponsors.  These individual and corporate sponsors help ensure that 100% of the funds raised at the Power of Each One go directly to support MLM's ministry. If you would like to be a sponsor, contact Scott Cooper at scottcooper@mlmkc.org for more information. 

Each year,  more than 700 MLM volunteers, supporters, and friends gather for the Power of Each One gala. The gala is MLM’s largest fundraising event of the year.

Enjoy our  first (and hopefully last) deconstructed gala in comfort at work, home, or wherever you want. It will served to you in courses for you to enjoy at your own pace.
