While the Cardinals players compete on the field, their generous wives, fiancés, and girlfriends join together to make a difference throughout the St. Louis community. Each year, the Cardinals Wives give back through a variety of fundraisers for area charities. Learn more about their 2017 events below.
Each season, the Cardinals Wives host a number of "Grab Bag" fundraisers. At each game-day event, the ladies sell mystery grab bags to fans for $50. Inside each bag is an autographed baseball from a Cardinals player and a card revealing the mystery signature. All proceeds benefit area non-profits selected by the Cardinals Wives. Grab Bags are available for purchase when gates open until they're sold out. Fans can purchase Grab Bags at Gates 1, 3 and 4, inside Ford Plaza, at the Cardinals Club, Redbird Club and in the suites.
2017 events are scheduled for:
Great Circle is a behavioral health organization that specializes in providing treatment, education, prevention and support services to children and families with a history of physical, sexual or emotional abuse, neglect or abandonment as well as children with Autism Spectrum Disorder and developmental disorders. Through the different services, they are able to help these children and families become healthy, enriching members of our communities.
Angels' Arms provides a house and many resources for foster parents, so they can create a loving home for foster children. The mission of the organization is to keep sibling groups together and find homes for hard to place foster kids, including teens transitioning into adulthood. Though Angels' Arms, foster kids experience what it is like to be part of a happy family and a caring community.
Throughout the year, the Cardinals Wives work closely with Make-A-Wish® Missouri to grant wishes to children in need.
Fans can get involved at the 7th annual Cardinals Wives for Wishes event on Sunday, June 11, 2017, at Fleming's Prime Steakhouse and Wine Bar. Fans can experience an unforgettable evening with the Cardinals Wives while truly making an impact on the lives of the children served. In six years, the Wives have raised over $1 Million granting more than 200 life-changing wishes for local "brave, tough kids" battling life-threatening medical conditions. With the help of Cardinals fans, the Wives hope to raise enough funds to grant 35 more wishes! Please visit the Make-A-Wish Missouri website to find out more information.
Each season, the Cardinals Wives participate in the Susan G. Komen St. Louis Race for the Cure® by supporting and encouraging the runners as they cross the finish line. The race is part of the largest and most successful breast cancer education and fundraising event series ever created.
