Best Worthy Cause - 2009
Foster & Adoptive Care Coalition
The Foster & Adoptive Care Coalition's primary aim is to find foster and forever homes for more than 5,000 children in metro St. Louis, but you can support this amazing organization in a host of smaller but useful ways. One of the most immediate and rewarding programs is Little Wishes, which allows donors to purchase and donate fun items (toys, books, art supplies) that have been specifically requested by foster children. The Coalition also holds fundraising events year-round, including the Red Ball Rumble kickball tournament, a trivia night, happy hours and the wildly popular Old Bags night (an annual silent auction of like-new designer handbags). Check the Coalition's comprehensive website for info about these happenings and more.
