As you know by now, our annual Gala was postponed until September 29th due to unrest in the city of St. Louis. Many of our supporters are now unable to attend. Please look at your calendars to see if the new date now works for you. There is still time to secure your seat at this event and we would love to see you.
For those that were going to attend, but now cannot, along with our wonderful supporters too far away to drive, this year we are offering our Oral Auction items online for a few days. Please read the attached items by double clicking on the below PG. #:
SO, HOW DO YOU BID?
- Call or email Beth or Kathy at our office at 314-842-3077…email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org
- We ask for a minimum bid of 50% of the listed value of the item. This will help Grace Place Wellness continue to serve Lutheran church workers around the country by guaranteeing an amount for each item.
- Please know that we will still present all items at the Gala for auction and you may be outbid.
THANK YOU for helping us get through this difficult time!
2017 Gala Postponed
Dear Friends of Grace Place Wellness:
Our ministry is only possible because of the generous support of friends like you!
As many of you know, a verdict was announced this morning in the Stockley case in the city of St. Louis. Our Gala was to be held at the Missouri Athletic Club in downtown St. Louis tonight. Based on the expected disruption and possible safety issues for our guests, the Gala has been postponed.
We have rescheduled the Gala for Friday, September 29th I pray that you will be able to attend this event.
Please call our office at 314-842-3077 with any questions. Refund information will be sent out early next week.
Thank you for your love, support and prayers for Grace Place Wellness and the church workers that we serve.

Not everyone can attend a Grace Place Wellness five-day retreat (but we’re trying!) What’s the next best thing? How about inviting us to present the wellness story at your next professional church worker’s conference? Program Director Darrell Zimmerman was privileged to spend the day at all five regional Pastor’s Conferences in the Florida Georgia District this month in Atlanta, Lake City, Orlando, Boca Raton and Sarasota. It was a fast-packed week, but the many positive comments made it well worth the effort. Our thanks to President Greg Walton (see Greg on video) and his regional VP’s for making it one of our best weeks of the year!
