St. Louis Ambush Raise Over $1500 to Benefit Karen Weidinger Foundation
St. Charles, MO (March 6, 2018) – The St. Louis Ambush and their fans raised over $1500 to benefit the Karen Weidinger Foundation (KWF), a St. Charles-based non-profit organization that is focused on bringing breast cancer awareness to the community as well as provide compassion and support to those fighting breast cancer.
The funds were raised through the auction of game-worn Ambush jerseys at the team’s final home game of the 2017-18 season on February 25. Prior to the start of the season, fans voted on a new jersey design, then suggested a worthy charity to benefit from the jersey auction at the final home game of the season. The KWF was chosen and will receive the proceeds of the auction. Ambush CEO Shelly Clark said, “We are proud to support a local charity who gives back to our community and raises awareness of a disease that has touched so many lives.”
The KWF was established in 2004 and named in honor of the late Karen Weidinger, who lost a valiant battle to breast cancer that same year. Karen was raised, attended school and worked in St. Charles. To date, the foundation has raised and given away over $300,000 to help individuals and families in St. Charles and the surrounding area with the struggles of overcoming this deadly disease.
