St. Louis Arc

Supporting People with Developmental Disabilities and Their Families Since 1950

Thanks to All the Texas Hold ‘Em Players Who Played in Our 2013 Poker Tournament

The St. Louis Arc's 9th annual "Showdown for the St. Louis Arc" was another big success! Players put on their best poker faces as they took part in the friendly competition and raised funds for the St. Louis Arc. The event, held Friday, August 23, 2013 at the Hilton Frontenac St. Louis, raised more than $25,000 to benefit the agency’s programs for people with developmental disabilities.

The Pennington family began the evening with a few words about what the Arc has meant to their family over the years. KMOX talk show host Mark Reardon was once again the Arc’s special guest emcee.

Trophies and bragging rights were awarded to the top three finishers:  Third place went to Kelly Hill ; Second place was awarded to Keith Marrs  and Mike Schlueter  was the Tournament Champion. 

Many thanks to our volunteers who pitched in, including St. Louis Arc employees and friends. We would also like to thank our event sponsors Centene Charitable Foundation, Total Rewards Strategies and Anheuser-Busch.
