Past Events



For the past 12 years, St. Louis Bicycle Works has organized the annual Cranksgiving food drive and family-friendly bicycle ride to benefit Food Outreach. The 2017 ride brought in 8,415 collected items (assorted cans, boxed cereal, etc.). Plus, St. Louis Bicycle Works collected $787 in donations from their registrations site and $864 in cash was donated at the Food Outreach table! These donations will help support our nearly 2,000 clients for 3 to 4 months! Thank you to the BWorks staff, volunteers, and the hundreds of generous riders who make Cranksgiving such a fun event each year. We also wish to thank the other event partners…Schlafly Tap Room (who donated $422 from their food sales), the Alpine Shop (who was on hand to assist with bicycle repairs), Tiny Little Monster (who donated $500 to us from their t-shirt sales), and all of the participating grocery stores (Save-A-Lot, Fields Foods, Aldi, Lucky’s Market, and Shop ‘n Save). Many, many appreciations to each of the community partners and riders who support those in our community who are not only afflicted with HIV/AIDS or cancer but also struggling to find the food and nutrition they need.

We hosted our second Sunday Funday Brunch called “SCare-E-Yolk-E” on Sunday, November 29. Everyone was treated to a delicious meal with unlimited trips to the Bloody Mary/Mimosa/Bellini bar, and also had the chance to belt out some tunes courtesy of Karaoke guru, JEFF BARNES.

Additionally, special guest, KEVIN STEINCROSS from Fox 2 treated us with one of his favorite songs, STRANGE DONUTS graciously donated Fall themed donuts for the occasion, and Chris McCarthy’s glass art (PARK AVENUE GLASS) was available for sale with 15% of sales donated to Food Outreach. Additionally, several of our guests dressed up in their favorite costumes! Many appreciations to all who attended this very fun fundraiser to support our mission and the clients we serve.

On Sunday, August 20, we hosted our first ever “Care-E-Yolk-E” Brunch at our center and it was a huge success! Everyone was treated to a delicious meal, a Bloody Mary and Mimosa bar, and the amazing talents of karaoke guru and award winning Elvis tribute artist, Jeff Barnes. We also hosted a raffle for an Apple iPad Mini 2, thanks to a generous donation from our Board President, Lee Kling.

Additionally, due to the support of our guests, we were able to double our fundraising goal! Thank you to everyone who attended and for your generous support of our mission. We are in the process of planning more karaoke brunches, so watch for updates on our website on our “Upcoming Events” tab.
