While the recent Mayor’s Shamrock Ball proved to be fun for all, it also proved to be a great success in fundraising.
“This speaks volumes about the tremendous support we received from the community and local businesses for Valley Industries,” Hazelwood Police Chief Carl Wolf said in the article. “Despite a down economy, it was great to see that we surpassed our efforts last year and more people saw the value of purchasing tickets for our cause. St. Louisans are known for their generosity and the large crowd we had at Garden Villas North is living proof of that fact.”
The Shamrock Ball is a fundraiser for the Sheltered Workshop in Hazelwood. Valley Industries is a nonprofit organization that provides employment for adults with developmental disabilities.
