WOW - there was everything to love about that event. Divine! - Jackie Ray (Attendee)

What a success! -- each of you must be feeling like Michael Phelps -- GOLD MEDALS all around -- what a superb example of vision, talent, and hard work coming together - an awesome, awesome event and impact to be made on the refugee families. Thank you for such a tremendous effort - Larry Kendall (FIRST member)

What a tremendous effort put forth by this group. I have never seen such results in the first year. The best part is not just the money that was raised but all the awareness for FIRST that was generated. Everyone had a great time. - Liz Baisch (Event Committee Member)

Saturday was the perfect day for Polo. We had a great time and the bar-b-que was the best I have eaten in a long time. St. Louis is such a generous community and our people truly get up under truly great causes. - Mike Houlihan (sponsor and attendee)
