July 19, 2012 - PRLog -- Remember being 24 years old? Your life just starting…

Andrew Mueller and Nikki Shortt, long time residents of Wright City, MO, were young and in love. Starting their lives together by getting married June 16th at Cedar Lake Cellars, where Andrew works, was the beginning. Nikki was 24 weeks pregnant when their wedding plans changed dramatically!

On June 11, 2012, Nikki went into pre-term labor and delivered Grayson Andrew Mueller at an unfathomable 1.5 pounds. They cancelled their wedding at Cedar Lake and instead held the ceremony at St. Louis Children’s Hospital. The staff there made Grayson his own tuxedo.

Grayson’s friends and family are hosting an all day benefit with all proceeds going to St. Louis Children’s Hospital Foundation and Grayson’s family to help with medical expenses, September 22, 2012. A BBQ will be held in Wright City at the 4 way stop from 10:30-2:30 pm and the benefit will continue at 6 pm at the Field Box Sports Bar & Grill located at 3721 Mexico Rd  in St. Peters, MO. Raffles, live music, great food- all to support Micro-Preemies, so please come out and join us. For more information on Grayson or this event go to his Facebook page at

If you would like to help prior to the event, we are looking for donations for the raffles, food donations for the BBQ, as well as volunteers for the day of the event. Please contact Danielle Whittemore at 573-864-6003 to help.
