United Services for Children invites the community to join us for an evening of celebration and gratitude as we raise money to help children with disabilities.
“Magical Moments – An Evening Under the Stars” is the theme of our 35th annual gala, to take place Saturday, Aug. 25, 2018, in the Discovery Ballroom of Ameristar Casino-St. Charles.
United Services will present the Champions for Children award to Joel and Janet Brett. Joel has served many years on the agency’s board of directors. He and Janet have staunchly and cheerfully supported the agency through leadership and hands-on volunteering, always going far above and beyond expectations.
We will bestow the Community Partnership Award to the Renaud Spirit Center – City of O’Fallon. The municipally operated recreational facility has been instrumental in helping us expand our pediatric therapy options, generously hosting our aqua therapy program.
Co-chairing the gala are Jeff and Susan Sams, owners of Sams Carpet Cleaning and Repairs in St. Charles. Jeff established the business in 1985, serving commercial and residential customers throughout the St. Louis area. He and Susan are longtime supporters of United Services. With their energy and commitment, Magical Moments is sure to be an amazing event.
More than 300 guests typically attend the gala, the biggest annual fundraiser for United Services, a nonprofit agency in St. Peters. Incorporated in 1977, United Services provides pediatric therapy, early intervention and family support services for children with disabilities. The agency is a leader in preparing children of all abilities to reach their full potential.
