Virtual Gatsby Gala
Night of Independence Awards
A 1920's Evening of Giving!
Saturday, September 26, 7:00 pm
The Gatsby Gala Night of Independence Awards is The Whole Person's largest fundraiser and supports the vast number of programs and services we provide to people with disabilities in the Kansas City area.
The health and safety of our supporters is our priority. Due to concerns about the impact of COVID-19, we have changed the format of this year’s event to a Virtual Gala. A lot of time and love is going into this event to make it a fun and memorable occasion you can enjoy from the comfort of your own home.
Host your own epic 1920's-themed house party, and join in with us to celebrate our 2020 award winners, raise some funds for TWP’s future, and have a Roaring Good Time!
Link to Virtual Gala will be emailed to all registered guests!
