2017 Power of Each One

Saturday, November 4th, 2017

Ritz Charles, Overland Park

Twilight is a time of transition from night to day and day to night. These fleeting periods are characterized by remarkable change and unexpected moments of beauty. Many people turn to MLM during their darkest hours and are met by caring and encouraging volunteers who, according to one client, “share their light when we do not have enough light of our own.” 

The Power of Each One gala supports programs that help diminish fear, reveal strength, and restore hope to our neighbors in need throughout the metro area. To reserve your seat, please contact Kelly Seward at or 816.285.3141. 


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.  Special thanks to the following corporate sponsors:
