10th Annual Memories & Melodies Gala Exceed Expectations
St. LOUIS (November 14, 2016) – MCHS capped off their 10th annual Memories & Melodies fundraiser by bringing in half a million dollars in donations on October 13th.
The local non-profit hosted many of St. Louis’ most philanthropic families and local companies with the goal of raising funds that will aid families caring for someone with dementia and Alzheimer’s disease.
With over 500 guests in attendance to support the MCHS cause, the initial goal was far exceeded and reached $500,000. 2016 Alzheimer’s Community Service Awardees Debbie & Jack Thomas provided continuous motivation and at one point threw out a matching challenge to supporters.
Other major funding for the evening was provided by: The Horncrest Foundation, Reinsurance Group of America, Edward Jones, The John Allen Love Foundation, The Shade Tree Company, Seniors Helping Seniors, Centene, Express Scripts, Ameren, The Fox Family, Kathy & Jim Snowden, Ellen & John Wallace and Betty & David C. Farrell.
The Memories & Melodies gala was held at the Chase Park Plaza and is scheduled for November 16, 2017 and will honor Nancy & Al Siwak. For more photos and information about Memories & Melodies 2016 click here.
