Thank you 2023 Gala Sponsors & Partners!

On behalf of  our Board of Directors, Co-Founders, Darryl Burton & Lamonte McIntyre, Honorary Chair, Sean O'Brien, Mistress of Ceremony, Quinn O'Brien, DA Mark Dupree, Kevin Strickland, Gala Chair Director Geoff Gerling, and Program & Volunteer Director, Valerie Burton.

We are absolutely thrilled to extend our heartfelt thanks to you for joining us at our recent gala event. Your presence and/or generous support made the "Turning Dreams into Reality 6th Annual Gala" on September 8, 2023 evening truly an exceptional miracle.

Your commitment to our cause is nothing short of inspiring. Your contributions will directly secure the freedom and stability for innocent people who desperately need your help. You helped to raise $154,990 with 300 guests in attendance and over 50 volunteers in action.


YOU are apart of something great. We need your help. Together, you are enabling us to continue our vital work. Your belief in our mission strengthens our determination to make a positive difference.

Miracle of Innocence is proud and truly grateful for. We honor and appreciate a host of volunteers who contributed greatly to the success of this event. Without the dedication of our volunteers this day would not have been made possible. 

Without a doubt, teamwork made the dream work! Congratulations to Sue Polistina Wright & husband Rick Wright who organized the silent auction with her team who collected almost 100 items and  helped to raise $46,030 to include Live and Fund a Need. 

We also thank Pastor Adam and LaVon Hamilton and the entire COR staff for all their support and sponsorship given towards this event. We send a special shout out to the following individuals and groups. Starting with Logan Shaver, The KC Chief Red Coaters, KC Swingsters, Greg Mosley, Memory Maker, Brancatos Catering, Computerized Auction Services (CAS) and Youth Volunteer Corps, Tom Bradley & Jina Lindsay for partnering with us again this year.
