Celebration of Hope 2023 Chairs

Terry and Peggy Dunn

Here’s a word from our chairs:


Art opens our minds and hearts, and shows us what is possible in the world.


When we engage with art, we elevate our mood, we improve our ability to problem solve, and open our minds to new ideas. The same things occur when families in crisis engage with Catholic Charities – their anxiety is relieved, and they can begin to consider the possibilities of a stable and self-sustaining life.


This makes the Nelson-Atkins Museum a fitting place for our 2023 Celebration of Hope. Surrounded by magnificent works of art, we will gather in the inspiring Kirkwood Hall to celebrate the lives changed this past year, and the hope that will be restored in the coming year.
