Be Sure to Join Us for Our Next Giveback Tuesday Event on June 27!

World's Fair Park St. Louis

Come join us this month for our June Giveback Tuesday, which is set for June 27. This month, our Giveback Tuesday event will benefit World’s Fair Park St. Louis.

Every month, we are proud to feature a local nonprofit charity and donate 100% of the earned proceeds from the entire day to the charity. Lunch, dinner, drinks, and carryout all go to the designated charity. We started Giveback Tuesday in July 2014 and have reached beyond our milestone of donating over $100,000 to local nonprofit charities!

Funds raised from this Giveback Tuesday event will go directly toward the completion of the organization’s feasibility and economic study, which will serve as a launching point for their special park to be created.

“Once the study is conducted, we will not only have a location for the park, but we will also have the hard numbers and information that businesses are seeking, which we can present to government officials and independent contributors,” said Tim Buening of World’s Fair Park St. Louis. “Currently, our Board of Directors is performing the majority of the fundraising work, along with networking and building awareness for this park.”

Established in 2016, World’s Fair Park St. Louis is aiming to create a special park that will serve thousands of diverse people.

“Our park will serve eight neighboring states within driving distance with a 1005 accessible playground, rides, attractions, amphitheater, ice rink, and greenhouse,” Buening continued. “We will also be providing our wounded veterans and high-level persons with disabilities job placement and expansion phases. Overall, our goal is to make sure that this park is 100% inclusive to every single person, no matter what their physical or mental needs are.”

Please join us in donating to World’s Fair Park St. Louis. The more you order, the more money we can raise! Remember: 100% of the profits from every purchase, dine-in and carryout, from open to close will be donated!

Pedal the Cause

Come join us this month for our April Giveback Tuesday, which is set for April 25. This month, our Giveback Tuesday event will benefit Pedal the Cause.

Every month, we are proud to feature a local nonprofit charity and donate 100% of the earned proceeds from the entire day to the charity. Lunch, dinner, drinks, and carryout all go to the designated charity. We started Giveback Tuesday in July 2014 and have reached beyond our milestone of donating over $100,000 to local nonprofit charities!

Funds raised from this Giveback Tuesday event will be used to fund groundbreaking cancer research at Siteman Cancer Center and St. Louis Children’s Hospital. “We will be presenting these funds to our beneficiaries on November 16,” said Carrie Sweigart, Chief Operations Officer at Pedal the Cause. “Last year, we donated over $3.8 million for cancer research, and we hope to grow our contribution in 2017.”

Since its inception in 2010, Pedal the Cause has made it their mission to fund research that will ultimately lead to a cure for all cancers. In total, they have donated $15.8 million to the Siteman Cancer Center and St. Louis Children’s Hospital. These donations have funded 84 research projects to tackle and cure cancer.

“In the face of diminished federal funding where support typically gets funneled to already-proven concepts, many potentially new ideas are not deemed eligible,” Sweigart continued. “Pedal the Cause donations ‘seed’ best-in-breed ideas to allow the cultivation of proof of concept and critical data. These projects often turn into groundbreaking results that lead to new treatments and cures, preventions, and early detection diagnoses.

As Dr. Ryan Fields, Surgical Oncologist and pedal-funded researcher at Washington University School of Medicine, said, “Pedal the Cause is hope, not just for patients and their families, but for physicians and scientists working to battle cancer as well.”

Please join us in donating to Pedal the Cause. The more you order, the more money we can raise! Remember: 100% of the profits from every purchase, dine-in and carryout, from open to close will be donated!

Please call us at (314) 942-6555 with any questions or visit us online at www.katiespizzaandpasta.com. Be sure to read more about Pedal the Cause and the great work they do by visiting www.pedalthecause.org.

Come join us this month for our May Giveback Tuesday, which is set for May 30. This month, our Giveback Tuesday event will benefit the Friends of Kathy J. Weinman Shelter for Victims of Domestic Violence.

Every month, we are proud to feature a local nonprofit charity and donate 100% of the earned proceeds from the entire day to the charity. Lunch, dinner, drinks, and carryout all go to the designated charity. We started Giveback Tuesday in July 2014 and have reached beyond our milestone of donating over $100,000 to local nonprofit charities!

Funds raised from this Giveback Tuesday event will be used to assist women and children who are temporary residents of the shelter. These funds provide them with many necessary essentials while they are at the shelter, including needed furniture and household items to help them establish a new home.

Established in 1992 by late St. Louis County Executive Buzz Westfall, the Friends of Kathy J. Weinman Shelter for Victims of Domestic Violence became the first and only domestic violence shelter in St. Louis County. They assist residents in establishing new lives devoid of violence and fear for themselves and their children. This often means providing shelter, counseling, case management, healthcare services, meals, community outreach, and educational services for these women and their children.

Last year, the shelter served 185 women and 120 children. Overall, they have assisted more than 2,000 abused and battered women and expect to serve nearly 200 women and 140 children this year.

Please join us in donating to the Friends of Kathy J. Weinman Shelter. The more you order, the more money we can raise! Remember: 100% of the profits from every purchase, dine-in and carryout, from open to close will be donated!

Please call us at (314) 942-6555 with any questions or visit us online at www.katiespizzaandpasta.com. Be sure to read more about the shelter and the great work they do by visiting www.friendsofweinman.org.

Join Us for Our Next Giveback Tuesday Event on March 28!

Joe's PlaceCome join us this month for our March Giveback Tuesday, which is set for March 28. This month, our Giveback Tuesday event will benefit Joe’s Place.

 

Every month, we are proud to feature a local nonprofit charity and donate 100% of the earned proceeds from the entire day to the charity. Lunch, dinner, drinks, and carryout all go to the designated charity. We started Giveback Tuesday in July 2014 and have reached beyond our milestone of donating over $100,000 to local nonprofit charities!

 

Funds raised from this Giveback Tuesday event will be used to help Joe’s Place tackle some much-needed projects and improvements around the facility, including a new shed.

 

Established in 2006, Joe’s Place offers homeless teenage boys in the Maplewood Richmond Heights School District a caring home environment that supports them in graduating from high school and creating positive futures. The organization places an emphasis on college and career readiness, as well as emotional, social, and academic success.

 

“Each year, close to a dozen of these students find themselves virtually without a home due to serious family difficulties,” said Heath Moylan, President of Joe’s Place. “That’s why we are committed to providing teenage boys at risk for homelessness a supportive home environment that encourages their pursuit of education and enriched lives. We want to offer these boys what every kid should be able to expect from life – a warm place to sleep, regular meals, and someone to provide guidance and attention.”

 

Since welcoming its first residents in 2007, Joe’s Place has served 25 boys with all but one successfully completing high school or on track to do so.

 

“We host up to four residents at once, plus we provide ongoing support for many of the boys who have participated in our program,” Moylan said. “We have seen the average grade point averages for each of these boys improve by 1.25 points, and their daily attendance has also improved by 12%.”

 

Please join us in donating to Joe’s Place. The more you order, the more money we can raise! Remember: 100% of the profits from every purchase, dine-in, and carryout from open to close will be donated!

 

Please call us at (314) 942-6555 with any questions or visit us online at www.katiespizzaandpasta.com. Be sure to read more about Joe’s Place and the great work they do by visiting www.joesplacestl.org.

We hope to see you on March 28 at Katie’s Pizza & Pasta Osteria in Rock Hill!
