The18th Annual Benefit for Mercy Kids was once again held at Busch Stadium, Friday September 23rd. Guests were dressed in their Cardinal’s Cocktail attire showing and demonstrating their support for thousands of of children and their families who depend on the programs and services at Mercy Kids Therapy and Development Center in St. Louis, MIssouri.

VIP guests arrived early for a special question and answer session in the Cardinals Clubhouse with John Mozeliak. A total of 450 guests were treated to drinks and hors D’eourves on the infield warning track with tours of the Cardinal’s clubhouse and a chance to pitch baseballs or hit baseballs in the indoor and outdoor bull pens. Guest’s then moved to the Red Birds Club where they enjoyed delicious dinner followed by a live auction and Fund-A-Need Campaign.
