Trivia Night 2021
The Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America, St. Louis Chapter
The Asthma & Allergy Foundation of America, St. Louis Chapter is holding its 17th annual Trivia Night on May 15, 2021! Last year's Totally Rad 80's trivia event was our most successful ever, raising just over $54,000! We'll be looking to build on that and have an even bigger event this year.
We are in great need of committee members for this event. Committee members will have various tasks such as:
- Securing Silent Auction items
- Selling virtual tables
- Promoting the event on social media
- Packing team party packs for pick-up
- Delivering auction items after the event
We hosted nearly 400 people at last November's virtual event. We are still creating this year's theme, but we hope to have 500 people this time around!
About The Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America, St. Louis Chapter
1500 S Big Bend Blvd Ste 1S, St. Louis, MO 63117, US
That Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America, St. Louis Chapter, serves those affected by asthma and allergies through education, support and medical resources.
Here in St. Louis, one in ten children deals with asthma on a daily basis. One in thirteen children take precautions with everything that goes in their mouth because they live with a food allergy. Many of the families of these children with asthma and allergies cannot afford the medicines to keep them healthy and safe. As a result, children miss school, lose social interaction time with friends, and start to fall behind.
That’s where AAFA-STL steps in. AAFA-STL provides a holistic asthma management program for low income children that provides not only asthma coaching, but also prescription assistance to help families afford expensive inhalers and allergy drugs. The organization also offers Healthy Home Assessments where trained staff inspect their homes to help identify triggers and help connect families to resources to improve their overall air quality.
AAFA-STL also partners with over 280 local schools to provide school nurses with nebulizers and asthma emergency equipment. This way, when an asthma emergency creeps up at school, it can be treated right then and there instead of sending a child home or to the ER.
The organization provides free asthma, allergy, and food allergy training throughout the community to day cares, schools, medical groups, and corporate events.
All of this to ensure children are living their lives without limits.
