Missouri Congressman William Clay will be the keynote speaker at the event.

The Event will take place in St. Louis MO on Saturday, August 9, 2014. Location is the Forest Park World’s Fair Pavilion situated on a hill that at a high point in the historic Forest Park. This is the venue of  a FREE concert/picnic and evening walk to bring awareness of Veteran Homelessness and raise funds to purchase furniture and household supplies.

The event will host a variety of bands, activities for children, food vendors, crafts and other St. Louis based businesses.  It will begin at 11:00 AM, and will end at 10:00 PM.

The Department of Veterans Affairs mission is to end Veteran Homelessness in the USA by 2015.  As of last count March 2014, there were 301 Veterans in the St. Louis area without a place to live.  Even more astounding, approximately 1600 are potentially homeless over the next 12 months.

Numerous organizations are already on board, despite the relatively short lead time for this event.  Emmis Communications is the official communications partner, critical to getting the word out to all St. Louisans. Information about the event is also being disseminated internally by many corporations including Enterprise Leasing & Mallinckrodt.

“We are grateful that so many local and national organizations are joining us in this cause”, says Marcena Gunter, Director of Public Affairs for the St. Louis Department of Veterans Affairs.

“Everyone can contribute to ending veteran homelessness in St. Louis simply by attending this event”, says Steven Conley, Executive Director of Veterans Benefits USA, who’s organization  is collaborating with the local Veterans’ Affairs organization in this mission.  Mr. Conley says that he plans to produce similar events throughout the U.S.
