Gateway180 held its annual Open Your Heart for the Homeless gala recently at St. Louis Aquarium inside Union Station, where guests were treated to a cocktail hour and dinner, plus auctions and a post-program tour of the aquarium. Funds raised from the evening go to support the organization’s mission of empowering women, children and families in the pursuit of independence and permanent housing.
“I cannot imagine a group more deserving of our support than the resilient families at Gateway180. As healthcare providers, we recognize that few things enhance the health of our community more than providing all children with safe and affordable housing to play, learn and achieve their full potential. We are humbled to be part of an organization that helps 80 percent of these families stay in permanent housing even years later.” – Dr. Patrick White, gala chair
