Marygrove is hosting its seventh annual black-tie dinner and auction, BLOOM on Friday, March 1, 2013. The evening will feature an elegant dinner in the beautiful Khorassan Ballroom in the historic Chase Park Plaza, a silent and oral auction, and live entertainment by St. Louis' own Dr. Zhivegas. This event has become a much anticipated evening of fun and friendship, and most importantly, an opportunity to help Marygrove further its mission of enriching the lives of abused children.
This year we are keeping many of the cherished traditions, such as having Marygrove kids participate in the evening. New this year is a presentation that will recognize a group of individuals who have demonstrated a commitment to youth in need and who will serve as Marygrove "Ambassadors", giving a voice to Marygrove's children within the community.
Marygrove is the largest therapeutic residential treatment program in eastern Missouri, serving 170 children each day. At Marygrove, children with mental health issues resulting from early trauma, often extreme cases of abuse, violence and/or neglect, receive treatment and life skills that will help them move toward a healthy future.
We open our doors to those that no one else has been able to help and we teach them how to open doors for themselves. We give them the time they need to heal and to realize the wonderful people they are inside.
Please contact Kathryn, Marygrove's Chief Development Officer, at 314-830-6249 or firstname.lastname@example.org, if you have any questions regarding sponsorship or would like to secure your place at this year's event.
We hope you will consider being a part of this special evening and we are looking forward to another outstanding turnout!
