We know that kids just want to be kids...that's why we have so many sports events.
This year we had Rainbows for Kids Night at the Ballpark complete with a pre-game buffet (shown left.) We appreciate the Cardinals involvement.
Kids Like to Play
The sports events started with the baseball team. Every child gets a uniform and hat and at the end they get trophies. These are kids who might not otherwise be able to play on a baseball (or softball team). We welcome boys or girls, good players or physically disabled. If you know of a child being treated for cancer or a serious disease at one of the St. Louis medical facilities who might like to play on a "baseball" team (it's actually Whiffle ball for safety) feel free to contact us.
We also have football, hockey, basketball, bowling and more.
Here is a party with Paralympic Gold Medal Winner Steve Cash-- the Goalie on the 2014 wining team, taking shots from the kids:

Tea Party at Sappington House Barn Restaurant
Our volunteers Kathy Bosch (shown in the photo at left in the center) and Joanie Protzel (right) created the concept for our Tea Party. The first year we had an American Girl theme and the kids brought their dolls. The second day we did not have the dolls, we made jewelry instead.
Karen Mott, the owner of the Barn Restaurant (orange shirt) provided tea sandwiches, desserts and drinks.
