Thank You for Making Promises of Hope 2016 a Success

ST. LOUIS (June 6, 2016) The Haven of Grace hosted Promises of Hope on Saturday, June 4, 2016. More than 175 guests were in attendance at the event, which was presented by Edward Jones and took place at The Edward Jones Atrium. Promises of Hope was co-chaired by Becky Hauk and Renee Stout with John and Crystal Beuerlein serving as honorary committee chairs.

The evening began with a cocktail hour in the gorgeous East Atrium. The Ladue Strolling Strings provided entertainment, and silent auction items such as jewelry, tickets to St. Louis arts events, a Magic House membership, a private flight, and a grill brought competitive bidding.

Dinner was served in the West Atrium. The exciting live auction featured a variety of items including dinner for ten at John Mineo’s, dinner for six at Annie Gunn’s, green seats to the Cardinals, a private flight with lunch, a cooking demonstration at Stone Soup Cottage, a Cardinals First Pitch Experience, and trips to Tuscany and the Bahamas. The evening ended on a high note with The Ultimate Promise Ring Prize Drawing. Andrea Tichenor had the winning ring box and went home with a beautiful black and white diamond ring from Décor Jewelry.

Promises of Hope raised $260,000 for The Haven of Grace, a residential facility serving women who are young, homeless and pregnant.  Offering a safe, nurturing home, educational programs and long-term support for mother and child, The Haven instills hope, dignity and the pride of independence, one family at a time.
