KC Oasis Sunday Gathering – Featured speaker: Tammy & Thad: West iNd Connection updates

June 4, 2023 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm

Musical guests: Forrest & Margaret McCurren (https://www.facebook.com/forrestmccurrenmusic/)
Community moment: Mary Lou Pick
Featured speakers: Tammy Parsons & Thad McCullough, West iNd Connection

Board members of West iNd Connection will share updates and successes of the organization over the past year, plus upcoming events, including PRIDE.
Tammy and Thad’s journey started together in 2004 when Thad joined her team at B-Vogue Salon & Gallery. Being inspired by their brand of choice, John Paul Mitchell Systems, they chose to make the world a better place! Their philanthropic efforts involved their local community of Independence, Missouri, The Englewood Arts District more specifically. B-Vogue Salon added “Gallery” in 2009 when the Arts District was established and used the Arts as a means to fund their fundraising efforts. In 2018 the demand to increase our outreach instigated the founding of the West iNd Connection.

Tammy resides in the arts district with her wife and partner of 28 years and their little nugget, a frenchie named WiNc! Thad lives just off the Independence Square with his husband and partner of 14 years and their menagerie of pets! They are all very proud Independence residents!
