THE BUSHWOOD BASH - A CADDYSHACK THEMED FUNDRAISER

May 13, 2017

Mid-May 2017 we hosted a private event, just for MOHF members. It was the social event of the season! We showed the 1980's classic, Caddyshack, on the big screen and attendees dressed up as their favorite club member or "shack" employee. And just for fun, we held a Caddyshack 18-question trivia contest!

MOTHER'S DAY RAFFLE AT MOM'S & MASCATO

BEAT THE ODDS - O.F.C. CHARITY BOTTLE RAFFLE

February 2017

During February 2017, we held a once in special raffle event to help raise awareness for CHD awareness month. Up for grabs was a priceless and collectible bottle of 1980 Vintage O.F.C. Bourbon, never before sold and only now has it been awarded to 100 charities for fundraising purposes. The same bottle had previously been auctioned off for over $13,000 but ticket purchasers had the chance to win this bottle for just $100. 1 in 100...the same odds of being born with a congenital heart defect.

heART OPENING GALA 2017

November 12, 2016

Included in our HeART Opening Gala was a Mighty Oakes Heart Foundation Market full of MOHF apparel and specialty, hand-made, heart-themed gifts to purchase. There was a small, but mighty silent auction as well as a live auction featuring very unique and coveted auction items. Without a doubt, the highlight of the night was the spectacular art work from some of the best area artists. The art featured within this HeART Opening included original pieces which were donated by professional artists, MOHF supporters both young and old, and, most recently, from some of our friends and campers at St. Louis Children's Hospital's 2016 Camp Rhythm. Throughout the Contemporary Art Museum, food stations featured delicious local fare while a live DJ kept things hopping. The Fish Eye Fun photo booth was a big hit!
