The National Children’s Cancer Society hosted its 8th Annual "An Evening with The Cardinals” in the grand ballroom of St. Louis Union Station on Jan. 11. Guests started off the evening with a cocktail hour, during which they could bid on items from the Cardinals and Blues organizations and have their picture taken with former Cardinals players Ozzie Smith and Ted Simmons. Smith and Simmons also shared stories from their time on the team at the event. Dan Mclaughlin served as emcee for the evening. 

For over 30 years, the National Children’s Cancer Society has supported families making their way though the daunting experience of childhood cancer while giving them hope and emotional and financial support. The society has served more than 44,000 children and distributed over $67 million to those families.
