Shriners Hospitals for Children Selected as 2017 Charity of Choice
Anders partners and staff have selected Shriners Hospitals for Children – St. Louis as the firm’s 2017 Charity of Choice. Now in its 12th year, the Charity of Choice program combines fundraising activities and volunteer efforts to support one local charity each year. Charities are submitted by members of the firm, and all members of the firm, from interns to partners, have the opportunity to vote for their choice at the firm’s meeting each January. In 2016, Anders raised more than $15,700 for Stray Rescue of St. Louis.
Shriners Hospitals for Children – St. Louis was nominated by the Anders Marketing Coordinator, a former patient. Since 1924, Shriners Hospitals for Children – St. Louis’s board-certified surgeons and staff have been providing high-quality pediatric orthopedic care to children, regardless of the families’ ability to pay. The hospital and clinic specializes in treating children with orthopedic conditions in an environment designed to put children at ease.
While events such as dress down days, penny wars and volunteer days are held throughout the year, the first major Anders fundraising event will be the annual “Hoops for Hope” NCAA basketball pool, which draws participation from clients, colleagues, referral sources and friends of the firm from all over the country.
