We want everyone to gather for a night to remember. Fundraising dollars will be distributed to many different causes. Cause 1) St Louis City Fire houses are in need of many items. Bedding, Furniture, housewares. These men and women live in the firehouse when away from home. Let's make these houses a home away from home for them. Cause 2) Backstoppers & First Responders: Both programs are created to give back to the families of fire and first respondents.
