Dynamic Duo: Feherty and Watson shine at 11th Annual Welcome House Breakfast! Plus, you helped us raise a RECORD BREAKING $334,701!

Let’s talk about the power of community! 

Everything about the 11th Annual Welcome House Breakfast affirmed what our kind and generous community makes possible in recovery:  a second chance at life!

We listened – and laughed! – with David Feherty. Embraced the wise words of Tom Watson. Honored our Miracle Award Honoree John Wendorff. Admired the life transformations of Micah Haen and our Welcome House Residents. Celebrated hope, dignity, and fellowship in sobriety…and raised an incredible, record breaking, $334,701!

Many thanks to our Presenting Sponsors AdventHealth and Cumulus Kansas City, our generous sponsors, donors, table captains, and guests. We simply could not fulfill our life-changing mission without you


2024 Miracle Award Honoree: John Wendorff

The 2024 Miracle Award was presented to John Wendorff, president and owner of The Personal Marketing Company. The honor is bestowed annually to an individual or organization that exemplifies Service to Others in Sobriety.

Welcome House President & CEO Jamie Boyle was delighted to present the award with heartfelt thanks to John who has served on our Board of Directors and as a generous benefactor and advocate for many years.

“What has always struck me about John is that his generosity grows in relation to his enthusiasm for whatever we’re doing. If you are blessed to know John, you know that his ideas, his excitement, his caring…are all larger than life!” says Jamie. “If you ask John what motivates his sense of generosity, he will tell you that giving keeps his own personal recovery fresh and exciting. Giving keeps him grateful.”

And for this, Welcome House is the grateful one! Congratulations and thank you, John, for all you do!
