Angels' Arms honors volunteers
Images of the 1904 St. Louis World's Fair surrounded more than 340 guests at the recent 'Stepping Out for the Angels: Meet Me at the Fair' event. A record $80,000 was raised at the fourth annual dinner auction conducted at the America's Center. All proceeds went to Angels' Arms, a non-profit organization that provides the home and resources for a foster family. Laura Dierberg Padousis and Ramon Gallardo served as honorary co-chairs of the event and WB 11's Kathryn Jamboretz served as mistress of ceremonies. Attendees enjoyed a silent and oral auction. The Lindbergh High Strolling Strings provided lively and unique entertainment. Founder/Executive Director Bess Wilfong presented outstanding volunteers of the year awards to Thom-as Pulliam, Vic and Sharyn Lenz for their hard work and dedication.
