Kansas City’s 2024 Art Auction Recap

HALO is a place to call home. Even after you move out of HALO, HALO is still family. There's still somebody you can count on. When you help someone like me, you're not only helping me, but you're helping the next generation. You're helping my daughter have a better life. So the fact that I can give her a good life, she can give her kids a great life, and we can have a better world."
HALO Alum Caylin
On February 24th, over 350 attendees gathered for a night to remember at The Midland Theatre for the 2024 HALO Art Auction! Guests from afar could watch the magical night unfold through our live stream as well! Walking in on a red carpet, the venue was filled with glamour and excitement with amazing silent auction packages, phenomenal live auction packages, a Moroccanoil Wheel, and beautiful art pieces. With the support of local businesses, HALO supporters, and talented artists, we had over 100 silent auction packages, raffle prizes, and a spectacular live auction!

As guests gathered for dinner and the program, everyone was moved to hear and see the direct impact HALO has on the youth we work with daily. From an inspiring dance performance from HALO kids in the Kansas City Learning Center to hearing where HALO Alums Noah, Marjai, Madison, and Caylin are now, attendees gave a standing ovation for these youth who truly have defied the odds!

During the program, Honorary Co-Chairs Marty & Cheryl Bicknell, Bill & Becky Krueger, and Billy & Mara Hodes shared why they have been longtime supporters of HALO. Marty Bicknell said it best;

"We are blessed. Let's bless others."
One of the highlights for many guests was watching the HALO Documentary Premiere of HALO Alum Caylin! Caylin was a part of the Jefferson City HALO Girls Home and has continued to be a part of the HALO Family, raising a beautiful daughter!
To close out a record-breaking night of raising over $875,000 (and still counting), guests joined in on the annual Dance Competition with music from Lost Wax!

Help us reach our $1 million goal and change the lives of children who need it the most.
