Jan. 11, 2011 - PRLog -- ST. LOUIS, MO–– Burger King's sponsorship, which comes by way of Liberty Restaurant Group, the local franchisee that owns and operates 23 locations, represents the single largest sponsorship commitment in the history of the event that benefits HavenHouse St. Louis. HopeFest will take place on February 19, 2011 at 6 p.m. at the Crowne Plaza in Clayton, MO. Each year, this sell-out, 350-guest dinner is planned by committee members of HavenHouse St. Louis and includes a live auction with local celebrity auctioneer J. Kim Tucci of the Pasta House Co., dinner, luxury opportunity raffle packages and a chance to Experience Hope in Action, which is the theme of this years’ fundraising campaign. Last year's fundraiser raised net proceeds of nearly $80,000. The Burger King sponsorship also included the development of HavenHouse’s new Interactive website.

“Burger King is a strong addition to our program,” said Kathy Sindel, Executive Director of HavenHouse St. Louis. “With locations and market penetration throughout St. Louis and even Illinois, we feel that Burger King will bring a heightened awareness of our cause.”

A Short List of Special Invited Guests include:
• Jeremiah W. (Jay) Nixon, Governor of Missouri
• Hon. Charlie Dooley, St. Louis County Executive
• Virginia McDowell, President and COO of Isle of Capri Casinos, Inc.
• Rebecca Herwick, President of Global Products Inc.

"We’ve had a tremendous experience building HopeFest and are thrilled to see such a great sponsor, such as Burger King, come on board," said Lindsey Gibson, Director of Community Development, HavenHouse St. Louis.

“We know from this event HavenHouse will not only provide an incredible boost to the families they serve, but it will also provide an opportunity to create a positive impression on the rest of St. Louis as they “Experience Hope in Action” firsthand. We believe that we will encourage other sponsors to step up which is vitally important,” said Kelly Hasty, Liberty Restaurant Group spokesperson.
