Hope House – believe

Abby Mocek and Ken Barnes were the honorary chairmen for believe – illuminating hope. For 30 years in a row, Kris Ketz has been the emcee. The event, a benefit for Hope House, was held at The Westin Kansas City at Crown Center on August 3rd. The 2019 Barbara Potts Award was presented to The Independence Police Officers of the Guardian Program.  Hope House’s mission is to break the cycle of domestic violence by providing safe refuge and supportive services that educate and empower those impacted by domestic violence.
