Our largest fundraiser of the year!

Our Super Ball Night of Independence Awards Gala is The Whole Person’s signature fundraiser which honors individuals and organizations that are working to further our mission to assist people with disabilities to live independently.

  • This creative black-tie evening of giving begins with a cocktail hour (cash bar).
  • Check out silent auction items, arrayed on tables near windows overlooking the football field, before enjoying a buffet dinner served at 7pm.
  • Program begins at 7:30pm and includes videos from our award winners, an exciting live auction with unique vacation packages.

Funds raised at the Gala will directly support TWP to assist with expanding our community-based programming for people with all types of developmental/cognitive, mental, sensory, and physical disabilities.  This programming is aimed at promoting, supporting, and empowering independent living choices, preventing institutionalization and being as responsive as possible to the needs of Kansas City residents who live with one or more disabilities. Nearly all our programs and services are provided for free supporting approximately 2,500 clients annually.
