Fall 2019 Football Breakfasts

We have all but three dates for the Fall 2019 Football Breakfasts "covered" as far as volunteers. The open dates for which we still need volunteers right now are September 7, September 14 and September 28, 2019.

A number of people from Benton Park West NA are interested in volunteering for one of those dates, and as soon as we hear back about a couple of requests to organizations, we will schedule the BPW volunteers and any other individuals who step forward to volunteer.

The organizations that have so far committed to send volunteer teams to assist with the breakfasts, on various dates, are DeSales Community Development, Tower Grove Heights Neighborhood Association, Tower Grove South Neighborhood Association, and the Fox Park Neighborhood Association.

We are thrilled with the wonderful support from the community for this year's Football Breakfasts.

Here's a link to our post with the game dates, times and locations:

Thanks - Fundraiser & Preview of Fall 2019 Football Game Schedule

In addition to thanking all those who attended to support the May 26th fundraiser, we want to thank the following entities for donating raffle items and other donations:  Tower Grove Heights Neighborhood Association, Sugarfire Smoke House, the St. Louis Cardinals, Stray Dog Theatre, Kitchen House Coffee, STL-Style, Civil Life, Domino's, Shaved Duck, Gustine Market, AB-InBev, Gelateria, Magic Chef Mansion, FlowState, Norah's Knits, and Roosevelt High School Football Team.

In addition and very importantly, we want to thank Riley's Irish Pub at the corner of Arkansas and Arsenal in Tower Grove East, which donated both the space and made a substantial monetary donation.

Proceeds of Sunday's event will support the Roosevelt Football Breakfasts. The RCC provides a hearty breakfast for the players on Saturday home game days to ensure that they have adequate nutrition. The RCC also supports the afterschool and summer program at Roosevelt as well as an annual 4 year college scholarship. This year's football team won the Public High League title and one round in the state playoffs, and is building a better, stronger team.

Thank you for supporting Roosevelt, your neighborhood high school!!!

Here's the tentative game schedule for the fall:
