Building a Ribbon of Hope

Saturday, April 27, 2024, at Barnes-Jewish St. Peters Hospital from 11 am – 3 pm

FREE Admission - Family Friendly

Help build a symbol of hope for our community. This FREE, family-friendly event helps us raise awareness and support for health resources offered through our St. Charles County BJC HealthCare facilities. To participate, join us at Barnes-Jewish St. Peters Hospital to purchase your Ribbon of Hope and inscribe it with a personal message. Ribbons and banners will be displayed outside the Siteman Cancer Center.

As we build our Ribbon of Hope, our community partners in health services and various other vendors will be on site to meet you! Experience the mission of the Foundation through family-oriented entertainment, activities and educational opportunities facilitated by our community health partners. The event is free to attend and family friendly! Ribbons may be purchased in advance of the event via the form at the bottom of this page.
