Roaring 20's Casino Night
Saturday, October 7, 2017 - 7 pm to 10 pm - Jr. League of St. Louis (106 N. Kirkwood Rd, St. Louis, MO 63122)
Thank you to our Gold Sponsor!
This year marks the Teen Pregnancy & Prevention Partnership’s 20th anniversary! When TPPP first convened, there were over 10,000 teen births in the state. The number is nearly half that today. Since 1997, TPPP has worked to create a strong coalition of over 50 private and public organizations, agencies, businesses, parents and community members in order to promote adolescent sexual health and teen pregnancy prevention across Missouri.
Despite the positive trend in teen pregnancies and teen births, there is still work to be done. Sexually transmitted infections continue to impact young people at disproportionate rates. In addition, TPPP’s work and many of the programs our members provide are threatened by a lack of funding as Federal and State budgets for sexual health education and public health shift or are eliminated.
We are partnering with one of our founding organizations, the Junior League of St. Louis, to bring the community together for a fun event that will sustain our work in new ways. With your help, we will continue the significant declines in teen pregnancy and ensure future generations of young people have the information they need to make healthy choices.
Join us as we celebrate the Teen Pregnancy & Prevention Partnership’s 20th anniversary by rubbing elbows with our members and supporters at a 1920’s themed evening with all your favorite casino games. It will be no risk (no monetary bets) but high reward with good company gathered for a great cause.
Guests will receive a set of chips to play with. If they run out, they can purchase more. At the end of the evening, the chips might be exchanged for raffle tickets. The evening will also include light hors d'oeuvres, drinks, and music.
This special evening will center on a brief program to highlight the accomplishments of the Teen Pregnancy & Prevention Partnership through our first 20 years with an invitation to engage with TPPP during the next 20 years.
