2014 O’ Night Divine
December 6, 2014
The 10th anniversary of the O’Night Divine Christmas Celebration benefitting the Pujols Family Foundation was held on Saturday, December 6, 2014 at the Chase Park Plaza in St. Louis. The event welcomed over 500 guests to the Khorassan Ballroom including many celebrity guests, such as, Tony LaRussa, Jim Edmonds, David Freese, Meadowlark Lemon, actor David Henrie, cartoonist Guy Gilchrist as well as other athletes, sports personalities, musicians and entertainers. The elegant décor featured colors in the celebration of the Foundation’s ‘Silver’ anniversary, with a special thanks to Sisters Floral Designs, Magnolia European Floral Boutique and Baisch and Skinner for their generous donation of centerpieces.
After an entertaining silent auction and delicious meal, Todd Perry, the Executive Director of the Pujols Family Foundation stepped on stage to begin the program. The program for this milestone year highlighted ten defining moments for the PFF over the past ten years. Each of the moments was presented by an individual with Down syndrome, a family served by the PFF, a PFF team member or a community leader. After celebrating ten years of service to the community, Todd Perry was honored to present the 2014 Gina Kelly Partner of the Year award to Rawlings for the company’s exceptionally generous support of the PFF mission and its programs. The evening featured silent and live auctions that included items from sports memorabilia to restaurant packages to vacation get-aways and more. All proceeds benefit programs that honor individuals with Down syndrome and celebrate the lives of the impoverished people of the Dominican Republic.
The Pujols Family Foundation has constantly been guided by its three founding principles of faith, family, and others. As the PFF looks forward to the next ten years, it strives to serve this extraordinary community and create opportunities through the mission.
