The annual gala event honors 20 older adults as Ageless-Remarkable Saint Louisans for their continued contributions well after the age of retirement. Hosted by the St. Andrew’s Resources for Seniors System, the event is expected to attract approximately 700 guests. The gala is the main fundraising event for St. Andrew's and its Charitable Foundation. Funds generated by the gala support the provision of housing and supportive services to low-income and at-risk seniors in the St. Louis area.
This year, among the West County Honorees will be Brother Leo Slay, 80, of Warson Woods, who has served as food service director for the Marianist Schools for the past 40 years. In recent years, he founded and continues to direct the Metro Food Service Co-op and works with local food banks to provide food to those in need.
