The Young Ambassadors of Wings of Hope hosted their first major fundraising event in the Wings of Hope hangar on October 14 – and Taste of Hope was a resounding success! More than 225 enjoyed tasting portions from local restaurants and beer and wine from St. Louis vendors. Crafts and face painting entertained the kids, and DJPru kept the mood upbeat with his lively tracks. Best of all, the event raised $12,700, more than four times the inaugural event’s fundraising goal. The proceeds will support Wings of Hope’s work in Tanzania, Cambodia and India.
