About the Gala

You are cordially invited to the WellSky Foundation’s Inaugural Gala: A Night Inspired by A Thomas Crown Affair®, on Saturday, January 28, 2023. Join us for an art-filled evening of cocktails, dinner, live auctions, and experiences Thomas Crown himself would endorse. Showcasing artwork from Art Lifting, and in memoriam of Kansas City artist Jeff Hanson, this event promises to be one to remember.  

Your participation will support our mission to improve the lives of those most vulnerable by removing social barriers so people can recover and get well. By supporting the WellSky Foundation, you enable the unceasing efforts of nonprofits doing the hard work of helping those the system has left behind. Gaps in housing, food insecurity, access to transportation, and isolation all create real challenges that are not only unfair, but that determine the health and wellbeing of the people who experience them. 

We invite you to join us in creating flourishing communities by attending or sponsoring the gala. Together, we can connect more people to the resources and support they need to thrive.
