Honorary Chairs 

Peter Sunderman & Curt Thomas

Sponsors are also invited to enjoy an exclusive patron party and dinner at Thundering Oaks on Thursday, Oct 5, at the country estate of Peter Sunderman and Curt Thomas.  Just a few minutes east of downtown, and slightly south of the Missouri River near Independence, 37 acres of rolling hills, creeks, waterfalls, and woods await and are sure to enchant you.  After a poolside cocktail reception, step inside the home for culinary delights prepared by Lon Lane’s Inspired Occasions.  After enjoying the dinner buffet, wander throughout the house and view the unique curated art collection and décor by JW Designs.  The event also features a ‘first look’ at some of the art to be auctioned at Off the Wall.  Finish your evening with dessert and Champagne, followed by coffee or a drink by the pool.
