Reed’s holiday kickoff fundraiser to be held Dec. 5th

ST. LOUIS, Mo. – President of the City of St. Louis Board of Aldermen Lewis Reed is hosting a Holiday Kickoff Fundraiser for his re-election campaign.

“I am looking forward to being re-elected to my fourth term as the President of the City of St. Louis Board of Aldermen,” Reed said. “Over the years, we have had many accomplishments including creating a $1 million recurring youth crime prevention fund which has provided jobs and opportunities to more than 20,000 young people. I have sponsored and passed legislation that will grow economic opportunities for the city, increase facilities for youth and will aid in the revitalization of the northside.”

Reed noted that he spearheaded legislation to commit St. Louis to 100 percent clean energy and he launched a partnership with Sprint to address the “Homework Gap” for students within the city’s public school system. He said that there is still a lot of work to be done in turning the city of St. Louis around.

“I will remain focused on addressing the issues of public safety in our City by continuing to push the Ceasefire and Cure Violence programs, providing more jobs and opportunities for our youth and enhancing our neighborhoods,” Reed said.

All are invited to join Reed along with his family, friends, community and business leaders and elected officials from across the region to celebrate his run for re-election. The fundraiser will be held Wednesday, Dec. 5th from 5:30 pm to 7:30 pm at Union Station Grand Hall.

Reed is asking for the guests to help spread holiday cheer and bring one new, unwrapped toy to the event which will be donated to local children.

Suggested donations from guests are $50, $100, $250, $1,000, $2,500 and $5,000.

Guests wanting to attend the fundraiser should RSVP with Nancy Diamond at 314-399-8569. Donations can be made online here.

“I look forward to seeing local legislators, community members, friends and family at my Holiday Kickoff Fundraiser,” Reed said. “I am truly honored and grateful to serve the residents of the City of St. Louis. Together, we will have a more unified, strong and safer St. Louis.”
