2015 Young Friends Kickball Tournament Raises $27,000 for Forest Park Forever

The winning team: Anheuser-Busch

The winning team: Anheuser-Busch

On October 24, the Young Friends of Forest Park Forever hosted their Third Annual Kickball Tournament on Forest Park's Central Fields. Eight teams competed in a high-energy, double-elimination tournament with colorful fall foliage as a backdrop. Participants enjoyed lunch provided by Butler’s Pantry and drinks provided by Anheuser-Busch. 

The Anheuser-Busch team took home the first-place prize. Second place went to Recess Rejects, and Cortona at Forest Park won the loser’s bracket. Thanks to all of our participants and volunteers for joining us on such a perfect fall day!

Many thanks also go out to our in-kind sponsors from the City of St. Louis Department of Parks, Recreation and Forestry, Butler’s Pantry, The Post, Cortona at Forest Park and our presenting sponsor, Anheuser-Busch. The event raised $27,000 to support the work being done by Forest Park Forever to maintain our region's greatest civic treasure.

We look forward to seeing everyone at our next Young Friends event: our annual Trivia Night on January 30, 2016!
