2nd Annual Open House

Ralph Waldo Emerson once said “Be an opener of doors” and that is exactly what we did! On September 22nd, United 4 Children hosted our Annual Open House.  Community members from near and far gathered together to learn more about our agency’s impactful mission and how our community, as a whole can work together-strengthening our program’s that open doors to so many children in need.

On behalf of our Board of Directors, Staff and children served, thank you for visiting our agency.

A special thanks to Costco Wholesale for their generous donation of food and beverages!

United 4 Children 2nd Annual Golf Tournament

The tournament featured several exciting contests with outstanding prizes including a car for the hole in one, courtesy of West County Nissan. Unfortunately no one won the car but there is always next year.  A successful event happens because of the help of many and we can’t thank our golf committee, sponsors, donors, players and volunteers, enough.  Start working on your swing for the 2015 tournament so you can be the one who drives home the new car.

A special thank you to our major sponsors…..

“Lighting the Way Gala”

Our 2014 Lighting the Way dinner and auction gala was a festive occasion highlighting the contributions of Missouri State Representative Jill Schupp and Peabody Energy.  Consistent with the vision of United 4 Children, our honorees advocate for a strong, healthy, and inclusive community where children and youth have enriching environments to reach their fullest potential.

Honorary Gala Chairs, Mr. and Mrs. Voss of Ameren, Gala Chair Valerie Anders of AT&T Mobility, Gala Co-Chair Rhonda Liesenfeld of Edward Jones, and our generous guests witnessed firsthand the benefits of youth who participate in after school programs through a Jazz Combo from the St. Louis Public School’s Central Visual and Performing Arts High School.  Proceeding dinner, attendees enjoyed an exclusive Wizard of Oz performance featuring the Stray Dog Theatre and Arts-In-Mind students.

Board Chair Jerry Schaefer did a fine job of thanking the audience for their support of United 4 Children and all of our major sponsors for the event:  Slay Industries, Ameren, Peabody Energy, Arch Coal, Emerson, GCB, Edward Jones and First Bank.

It was indeed, a festive and memorable evening.  The funds raised from the event will allow United 4 Children to continue to improve the quality and access of services for children and youth by empowering and inspiring families, professionals and the community.
