The St. Louis Cardinals wives are committed to making a real difference in our local community. Throughout the baseball season, the wives participate in Grab Bag events, in which they sell baseballs signed by Cardinals players during home games at different locations inside of the ballpark.
On June 4th, the wives conducted their first Grab Bag Event of the 2016 season. The baseballs sold out before the start of the third inning, and the event raised a total of $30,000! All proceeds benefitted two local non-profit organizations: Angels’ Arms and Great Circle.
Angels’ Arms provides a house and many resources for foster parents, so that they can create a loving home for foster children. The mission of the organization is to keep sibling groups together and find homes for hard to place foster kids, including teens transitioning into adulthood. As a result, these foster children experience what it is like to be part of a happy family and a caring community.
Great Circle is a behavioral health organization that specializes in providing treatment, education, prevention and support services to children and families with a history of physical, sexual or emotional abuse, neglect or abandonment, as well as children with Autism Spectrum Disorder and developmental disorders. These services help to make a positive impact in the lives of these children and families.
The next Cardinals wives Grab Bag event will take place on August 6th! Baseballs will be sold at the following in-stadium locations: Gate 1, Gate 3, Ford Plaza, Cardinals Club and the Redbird Club. The event will benefit the following local non-profit organizations: The Covering House and Lydia’s House.
