40th Annual Valentine Gala – Another Great Evening! 

Children’s Mercy Park was the perfect setting for the Sunflower House 40th Annual Valentine Gala on Saturday, February 12. Gala Chairs Sunny and Rick Maniktala welcomed almost 300 guests for an evening of great fun, fabulous food, and a chance to help children and families impacted by abuse. Guests were greeted at the door with Coach Ted Lasso, followed by fun and games, photos, and a silent auction in the Field Club. The KC Marching Falcons were the highlight of the evening as they ushered guests to the Shield Club for dinner and a delightful program hosted by Taylor Hemness from KSHB 41 News.

Sunflower House President and CEO, Judi Rodman, took the stage to share the incredible impact Sunflower House has for children and families in Johnson and Wyandotte. Guests enjoyed an exciting live auction and fund-a-need – all to raise critical funds to support the mission of Sunflower House. Sponsors, guests, staff, Board members, and volunteers all enjoyed a fun and inspiring event, raising almost $200,000 for Sunflower House.
