The Mission Cup is the one large fundraiser that Father’s Club has per year, so it’s all hands on deck for that weekend.
We played golf on Friday, and then on Saturday we held our annual Auction and After Party at Chicken and Pickle in Overland Park.
A special thanks to the planning committee members for 2023: Jeff von Seldeneck, Mike Davisson, Chris Caton, Kevin Easterday, Anthony Bower, Charles Dahm, Mike Rothwell, Jeremy Marks, and Mike Oppold. Putting on this event takes a LOT of work, and these guys assembled an amazing group of sponsors and auction items.
Also special thanks to Marlo Bratton and Jillaine von Seldeneck for handling golfer registrations and doing whatever was needed at the auction and after party! Video and photography for the weekend was provided by Noah Johnson and Allie Bratton. It’s a huge group effort.
Next year promises to be even bigger!
Father’s Club continues to grow across the Kansas City metro, and we plan to scale the Mission Cup weekend to match that growth with additional events and opportunities to support the effort.
Lastly, the biggest thank you goes out to the dads who continue to lean in and support their kids and their communities through the work of the Father’s Club. You guys are setting a powerful example for your families. Keep up the great work! We’ll see you all at next year’s Mission Cup!
P.S. And who knows what you might see at the event… maybe even a rare sighting of Brad Holdhusen (left) breaking out his fishing rod in the middle of the course… and Jamie Bluma (right) holding up the results.
