Casey & Devoti recently agreed to sponsor “The Wine Opener” event hosted by the St. Louis chapter of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. The fund-raising event will include tasting stations featuring wines from both international and domestic wineries as well as food prepared by local chefs. This year’s event will be in the City Hall rotunda in downtown St. Louis on September 21. The Gateway Chapter hopes to have more than 300 people attend its 11th annual “Wine Opener” this year.
Cystic Fibrosis is a genetic disease affecting children and young adults. A defective gene causes the body to produce abnormally thick, sticky mucous. This abnormal mucous leads to chronic and fatal lung infections and impairs digestion. Currently, there is no cure for the 30,000 people afflicted with Cystic Fibrosis in the United States.
Interested in attending “The Wine Opener” or learning more about Cystic Fibrosis? You may contact the national organization at www.cff.org or reach out to the local chapter at firstname.lastname@example.org and (314) 733-1241. Please also feel free to call Matt Devoti for directions on how to purchase tickets to the event.
Casey & Devoti also recently agreed to underwrite the efforts of a local women’s shelter care program to update its website. The firm is working with Claris Law in an effort to help the shelter – St. Martha’s Hall – strengthen its internet presence. St. Martha’s Hall is coordinating with Claris Law to modernize its website, including the engineering of the site to permit the posting of up-to-date information to educate and inform the shelter’s benefactors and supporters throughout the community about the presence of domestic violence in our community as well as opportunities to financially assist the program.
St. Martha’s Hall is a not-for-profit agency that provides a shelter care program for abused women and their children. Its mission is to help abused women and their children break the cycle of violence in their lives by offering an immediate, confidential place for the abused women and their children to live as well as a supportive environment emphasizing peer support and a self-help philosophy.
Matt Devoti serves as a member of the board of directors of St. Martha’s Hall. For more information about St. Martha’s Hall and the services it offers, visit www.saintmarthas.org .
