2019 Power of Each One

"The Best is Yet to Come!"

Saturday, November 2nd, 2019 

Overland Park Convention Center

​6:00 pm

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.

2019’s gala theme is based on the Rat Pack, circa 1950s  - early 60’s.  Suggested attire is "Swanky" Cocktail or your favorite Sunday clothes.  New this year, the evening will begin with a cocktail reception and auction at 6:00 pm in the lobby; one free drink ticket and cash bar will be available.  Silent auction items will be available for you to bid on, while you sip your favorite drink and socialize. Preview the Silent Auction here! Doors will open at 6:45, for dinner, entertainment and program.

Lisa Rodriguez, local KCUR on air personality, will emcee the evening, with music of the era by KC’s own jazz duo Eljae & AC, and inspirational presentations about the life changing work of Metro Lutheran Ministry.

Please join us for an evening of music, inspiration, and fun!
