Imagine! Assistance League of St. Louis Puts on the Glitz With Gratitude

MaryPatTwenty-first century flappers and Gatsby-esque gentlemen recently gathered to celebrate IMAGINE! at the Doubletree by Hilton-Chesterfield. This year, Assistance League of St. Louis' signature fundraising gala was attended by 245 glittering guests. See Town&style for more photos.

With Rene Knott, KSDK News Anchor as MC, the packed ballroom of generous bidders achieved a "roaring '20s" financial success. The annual gala raises a significant portion of the funds critical to implementing the five community programs managed by the volunteer members. In the past year, 36,000 lives have been touched through these programs in the St. Louis community. With gratitude for this generosity, the nonprofit is a prudent financial steward, accredited by the BBB and has achieved Platinum status by Charity Navigator.

Fantastic Finds Gives Back With Customer Appreciation Days

FF MembersIn addition to IMAGINE!, Assistance League of St. Louis volunteers manage and staff FANTASTIC FINDS, their upscale resale shop in Creve Coeur voted 2022 A LIST* BEST RESALE SHOP by St. Louis Magazine. Fantastic Finds is the year-round fundraising engine for the nonprofit and empowers it to transform the lives of children and adults through their five programs.

This year, on the Friday and Saturday following Thanksgiving, Fantastic Finds Customer Appreciation Days celebrated the support of loyal customers who helped ALSTL achieve A* LIST status. Putting the focus on gratitude for these customers, the volunteers gave back with two days of fun, including cookies and chocolates, selecting a free scarf and surprise drawings for special gifts. Without the year-round support of FANTASTIC FINDS, ALSTL could not achieve the tremendous impact it has on our St. Louis community.

After 35 years, Assistance League of St. Louis remains: Inspired by the Past and Focused on the Future.
