Inclusion Connections’ annual signature fundraising event, Gala FashionAbility, was one for the books! Local celebrity Rex Hudler, color commentator for the Kansas City Royals, pitched in to help raise record funds with the help of a sold-out crowd of supporters who bid on Silent and Live Auction items including an unexpected, last-minute addition of a behind-the-scenes Royals’ experience with Rex.
