St. Louis Area Diaper Bank's Fantastic Fathers Benefit Concert

  • Updated

St. Louis Area Diaper Bank kicked off Father’s Day weekend with its Fantastic Fathers Benefit Concert at Scene Event Space in St. Louis’ Grand Center Arts District. Guests enjoyed cocktails and hors d’oeuvres while listening to the jazz stylings of Denise Thimes. Thimes has wowed listeners with her voice for more than three decades, has sung for the likes of Queen Elizabeth II, Aretha Franklin and George W. Bush, and has performed with jazz greats Wynton Marsalis and Bobby McFerrin.

The concert event in celebration of fathers from across the metro area also offered a themed basket raffle to benefit the nonprofit’s programs, including efforts to collect and distribute diapers and personal hygiene products to families in need. With help from partner agencies, the nonprofit in 2021 distributed 2,626,000 diapers and 378,000 period supplies.

“The Fantastic Fathers event was an opportunity to celebrate the important role fathers play in the lives of their children,” says Julia Moss, event chair and vice chair of the St. Louis Area Diaper Bank’s board. “I am honored to be involved with the St. Louis Area Diaper Bank, the only organization in the greater St. Louis area that provides diapers and personal hygiene items to families and individuals, helping them live healthy and dignified lives.”
