Thank you to all the attendees, sponsors, volunteers and donors who made the 19th Annual Stepping Out for the Angels auction the most successful to date! Over 500 guests filled the River City Casino & Hotel and enjoyed an evening of gourmet eats, festive cocktails, gorgeous and fun Moulin Rouge decor, a plethora of silent and live auction items, live French entertainment and a moving presentation by our Angels’ Arms youth! All of the Angels’ Arms house parents were in attendance and received a touching standing ovation. Special thanks to our emcee Heidi Glaus for joining us, and kudos to Event Chairman Tom Hartnagel for pulling off another magnificent event for the 19th year in a row!

The Spirit of St. Louis Women’s Fund interviewed our Founder and Executive Director as a part of their Grantee Profiles. We are so grateful they continually support our Life Launch program, which helps the youth ages 14-21 living in our homes. We appreciate this group’s desire to know more about what we do and how their contributions directly impact Angels’ Arms.

**IRA Charitable Rollover Donations to Angels’ Arms
If you are 70 1/2 or older, you can make tax-free donations from your IRA to Angels’ Arms.
Benefits to donors:
– Funds rolled over directly from your IRA account to Angels’ Arms will not be recognized as gross income for federal tax purposes. Keep in mind, the funds transferred also will not qualify for a charitable deduction.
– If you have not yet taken your required minimum distribution, you can satisfy your required minimum distribution in whole or in part by having the funds transferred directly from your IRA to Angels’ Arms.
– The funds can be used to satisfy a pledge or to make a new gift to Angels’ Arms. (Unfortunately, the law does not permit the funds to be used to establish a charitable gift annuity or other planned gift.)
For more information, contact us at 314-842-8400. We encourage you to consult with your tax advisor or accountant if you are considering making an IRA charitable rollover gift to Angels’ Arms.
We had such an amazing time on Saturday at our 14th Annual Soulard Bar Bounce! There were over 1,000 bouncers on over 70 different teams with each team having a different shirt color! Thank you all for coming out and helping to raise OVER $52,000 for the foster children living in Angels’ Arms homes. St. Louis is an amazing community! We couldn’t have done it without our sponsors, bouncers, Junior Board, bars and the wonderful Soulard community.

Hello all you wonderful Bar Bouncers; there are over 900 of YOU!! Wow, there’s going to be a lot of people bouncing around Soulard on October 5th. Before the fun begins, there are a few steps of preparation.
- Read the Bar Bounce 2019 FAQs and make sure all of your team members have read and signed the Bar Bounce Waiver 2019
- Make sure your team captain knows they have to pick up your packet (including t-shirts, route, etc.) from Great Grizzly Bear on Wednesday (10/2) or Thursday (10/3) from 5 to 8 P.M.

- On the day of the event, go straight to the first bar on your route. Sometimes, it helps to meet your group before and all come together.
