The 31st Annual St Louis Army vs Navy Football Game Celebration of St Louis kicked off Saturday December 9th at the Missouri Athletic Club on a cool clear afternoon while the game day was a snowstorm and exciting game till the very end! Honored Guest, Lt. Col. Rob Wunderlich, Jr, United States Illinois Air National Guard, Retired Former USMC Pilot and member of the “US Navy Blue Angels” received a service award and autographed hornet photos. Guests enjoyed a buffet luncheon and drinks from the cash bar prior to and during the 118th Army vs Navy Game displayed on monitors throughout the party room. Army beat Navy 14-13 in a very close game dominated mostly by Navy.

“I’m proud to report, for the past 15 years we have raised more toys during the “Saint Louis Annual ARMY vs. NAVY Football Game Celebration” than any other privately held event in St. Louis.  Some of our contributors were from the Boeing suppliers and contractors. This year we had an apparent competition between two local contractors. Long story short, each one of the contractors delivered panel trucks full of toys! It’s moments like this that makes it all worth it for me.”

“We’re proud to support our Marines in their annual campaign… So many families depend on the Toys for Tots and It’s humbling for me personally knowing we can contribute to our families in need.”
