The St. Louis Cardinals are committed to making a real difference in our community. We are fortunate to have a generous group of wives and girlfriends who want to help our fans and are excited to expand their participation each season.
Throughout the baseball season, the St. Louis Cardinals wives donate signed baseballs from their Cardinal Player. Each event will have 24 signed baseballs from each player on 25 man roster, the baseballs are sold for $50 per ball and it will always be a surprise of the autograph given away. At each event the money goes to different non-profits in the St. Louis area. Dates will be June 4th and August 6th.
See below for our important dates and the non-profits we will be supporting this 2016 season.
Great Circle 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, we are able to help these children and families become healthy, enriching members of our communities. Angels Arms - 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.
The Covering seeks to provide a place of refuge and restoration for girls who have experienced sexual trafficking or sexual exploitation. By taking a stand against the modern day slavery of the commercial sex industry and providing refuge for today's young survivors, The Covering House is fighting for a world without slavery. Through individual counseling and group therapy offered by clinically licensed counselors, they teach safety and help the girls. Lydia's House works in faith to end domestic violence by being a place of healing and a voice of hope for abused women and their children. Lydia's House provides safe, affordable transitional housing in confidential location for a maximum of two years. They assist women and their children to create and implement long term individual life-goal plans which include education, training, employment and safe housing.

The Cardinals Wives will be hosting their 6th annual Cardinals Wives for Wishes event benefiting Make-A-Wish Missouri on July, 17th at Fleming's Prime Steakhouse and Wine Bar.
Enjoy an unforgettable evening with the Cardinals Wives while truly making an impact on the lives of the children we serve. In five years, they have raised over $775,000 granting over 150 wishes for our local "brave, tough kids" battling life-threatening medical conditions. We're hoping, with your help, this year we'll be able to raise enough funds to grant 35 more wishes!
Guests will enjoy celebrating with the Cardinals Wives at this exclusive event complete with fine wine, salsa dancing, cigar rollers, rum tasting and mucho mas!
Since 1983, Make-A-Wish® Missouri has granted wishes to more than 5,000 children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy. This year, the local chapter will grant more than 300 wishes. According to a 2011 U.S. study of wish impact, most health professionals surveyed believe a wish-come-true can influence the health of children. Kids say wishes give them renewed strength to fight their illnesses, and their parents say these experiences help strengthen the entire family. Please visit the Make-A-Wish Missouri website to find out more information.
The Cardinals Wives partake in the Komen race each year by supporting and encouraging the runners/walkers as they are crossing the finish line. They always have a special gift for all of the survivors that partake in the race.
The Komen Race for the Cure Series is the largest series of 5K runs/fitness walks in the world. The Komen St. Louis Race for the Cure® is the largest in the country. The Race raises funds for the local fight against breast cancer, celebrates breast cancer survivors, and honors those who have lost their battle with the disease.
