Field of Dreams 2016 annual dinner auction

2016 Field of Dreams Dinner Auction


The Field of Dreams dinner auction on Aug. 27, 2016, raised more than $120,000 in net proceeds to help children of all abilities reach their full potential.


More than 300 guests attended the United Services for Children fundraiser in the Discovery Ballroom of Ameristar Casino in St. Charles. Many came dressed in baseball-style clothes, in keeping with the Field of Dreams movie-inspired theme. 


A special appeal raised money to support the United Services early intervention program, which provides additional support for the agency's youngest children with special needs. 


United Services President and CEO Denise Liebel and GM Wentzville Plant Manager Satya Veerapaneni presented awards to longtime United Services supporters. GM was one of the event sponsors.


Jane Carlisle and her husband Jim Dolson received the 2016 Crider Award. Bax Engineering Company and its president, Cliff Heitmann, received the 2016 Community Partner Award. Carlisle, Dolson and Heitmann have volunteered many years on United Services boards and committees. Bax Engineering has supported the agency through donations and volunteer activities.


Thank you to all our sponsors, and the staff and volunteers who made our 32nd annual annual dinner auction a great success!
