Story and photos by Bryan Schraier

he Grand Hall on Chouteau was decked out in red, yellow and orange as Care and Counseling celebrated its Planting the Seeds of Hope Gala and Auction. Guests enjoyed cocktails and hors d’oeuvres while being serenaded by world percussion performers Joia. They also browsed live and silent auction items, bought raffle tickets, nabbed grab bags and chose wine from a wine pull. After dinner, the 2017 Heart of Care and Counseling Award went to Betsy Douglass. Care and Counseling enhances emotional, relational, and spiritual well-being through affordable counseling, professional training and community education; the organization has been serving the St. Louis community for 50 years.

You know, the meaning of Care and Counseling – the meaning of the work we do and the mission of the work – [it] really touches me. We provide professional licensed counselors to individuals in need for everything from premarital counseling to severe depression. Our therapists provide those services thanks to the generosity of our supporters and donors, especially tonight. They are able to provide those services with a sliding scale. And that’s something not everybody can do.
