Ambassador Choice Awards

Congratulations to our 2019 Honorees and all our Nominees!

The Ambassador Choice Awards is an annual Cardinal Glennon Children's Foundation event, spearheaded by our Glennon Ambassadors. Our grateful patients and families wish to provide an evening where the mission and purpose is to publicly recognize and celebrate the work of all SSM Health Cardinal Glennon caregivers.

During the program, we highlight stories of many nominated caregivers. We also present Ambassador Choice Awards to a handful of the below nominees. Stories are selected by Ambassador families, through an extensive review of the nominations submitted…but just like the surprise factor at the Academy Awards, you have to come that night to see who receives special honors!
