Since 2016, the annual Champions of Hope Gala has raised more than $3.8 million to support the American Cancer Society’s mission.
Thanks to the St. Louis community, the Champions of Hope Gala has grown into one of the most successful American Cancer Society galas in the country. Past event chairs included Warner and Cindy Baxter, Dave and Thelma Steward and Michael and Noemi Neidorff. Previous entertainment included Amy Robach, ABC News Good Morning America, Patrice Rushen, Grammy-nominated jazz artist, and Scott Hamilton, Olympic figure skater.

Entertainment: VOTE FOR PEDRO
Formed in 2005, Vote for Pedro can be easily summed up in two words: experienced professionals. Vote for Pedro is Jeff Faulkner (guitar, vox), Jamie Perryman (drums), Chris Bosslet (bass, vox), Lydia Caesar (lead vox, percussion) and Paul Kriege (keyboards, sequences). Collectively, they make up one of the best and most respected bands in the St. Louis area. Individually, they’ve played to packed houses in local venues (Mississippi Nights, the Pageant, the American Theater and Hollywood Casino Amphitheater, to name a few) and have toured regionally and nationally in previous bands. Over the years, they’ve been supporting acts for notable bands and events including Foo Fighters, the GO-GOs, Green Day, Matchbox 20, PointFest, Silverchair, Rick Springfield, The Toadies, Little River Band, Charlie Daniels Band, and Night Ranger. Vote for Pedro will keep the dance floor packed with guests having fun all night long!
