Development Board

The Development Board is a group of young professionals in the metropolitan St. Louis community who want to make a difference in the lives of patients at SSM Health Cardinal Glennon Children’s Hospital. Through their leadership and volunteerism, they help put on fundraising events like Scoops of Fun, Glennon Golf Classic, Field Side Party at Glennon Gallop and the Sun Run, raising funds for our patients and families. Their leadership and vision also formed the Young Friends of Cardinal Glennon to help introduce college students and recent college graduates to the lifesaving mission of SSM Health Cardinal Glennon Children’s Hospital.
