All proceeds from the event will be distributed among four St. Louis charities: Champ Assistance Dogs, which places service dogs with people with disabilities; FOCUS Marines Foundation, which provides support to combat-wounded Marines and aids their transition to civilian life; Gateway 180, Missouri’s largest 24-hour emergency housing organization for women, children and families; and Play it Forward STL, which provides musical instruments to children whose schools and families cannot afford to buy the equipment.


The event June 3 includes live music by St. Louis bands Mt. Thelonious and Hot Soup; a $5 all-you-can-eat buffet featuring food provided by local restaurants; guest bartenders working at the patio bar and collecting tips for donation; and raffles and silent auctions for art, event tickets, wine tastings, sports memorabilia, gift baskets and more. Last year’s event raised more than $20,000.
There is no cover charge, but guests (21 and up only) should show up in a generous mood.

About Mike Mullen Day • A proclamation by St. Louis Mayor Clarence Harmon in 1999 declared May 2 as Mike Mullen Day. Years later, a group of Mullen’s friends honored the day with a surprise party for Mullen, an activist well known in the Central West End neighborhood. The celebration morphed into an annual fundraising event for four charities selected by Mullen and the foundation’s board of directors. Mullen, a St. Louis native, founded Pets Are Wonderful Support (PAWS) and has been active with the St. Louis AIDS Memorial, the St. Louis AIDS Foundation AIDS Walk and the Animal House Fund. He also served as the HIV/AIDS liaison officer for the mayor’s office. The St. Louis Mullen Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit.
