Boys Hope Girls Hope of St. Louis’ Evening of Hope

  • Updated

Boys Hope Girls Hope of St. Louis hosted its 25th annual Evening of Hope gala at the St. Louis Aquarium at Union Station in late October. Upon entering, guests were treated to a tour of the St. Louis Aquarium, cocktail reception, dinner and live auction. Evening of Hope was successful in raising $750,000 this year and will benefit the middle school and high school students the nonprofit serves as they “rise above disadvantaged backgrounds and become successful in college and beyond,” the website states.

The evening paid tribute to the 2021 Father Sheridan Reflection of Hope recipient, Ernst & Young, LLP, with partner Jim Hill accepting the award. The 2021 Heart of Hope recipients were Gary and Terry Sibbitts. Event co-chairs were Lisa Flavin, senior vice president and chief compliance officer of Emerson, and Juanita Logan, area vice president of global corporate development for World Wide Technology. St. Louis’ 5 On Your Side anchor Rene Knott served as emcee.

“The Evening of Hope is a moment in time to celebrate and honor our Boys Hope Girls Hope St. Louis scholars and caring community and reflect on how much hope is in the world,” Logan says. “We are so grateful for our caring community of businesses, organizations and individuals who are committed – through their time, talent and treasures – to keep the spirit of hope alive in the hearts and minds of our deserving scholars.”
