BYO Boo Raises Funds for DOORWAYS Each Year

St. Louis, MO – October 24, 2022 –  On Saturday, October 22, 2022, the DOORWAYS Friends In Deed group sponsored BYO Boo, a Halloween-themed trivia fundraiser. The event was held at the Glazier’s Union Hall at 5916 Wilson Avenue. A near sell-out, over 220 people enjoyed 10 rounds of trivia, a 50/50 raffle, raffle baskets, two pay-to-play games, a wine pull, and more. Those attending voted on the best individual and team costumes (see 3rd photo). 

Opal M. Jones, president and CEO of DOORWAYS, welcomed the crowd and expressed appreciation for such a strong turnout. She also expressed gratitude for the many volunteers who made this event a success.  Tim Bono served as the MC. The raffle baskets were donated by Friends In Deed members Colin Keller, Haliday Douglas, Jenny Giudici, Joe Pfaller, Chris Lintz, and Tracy Stone. And several other volunteers joined with set-up, judging, selling raffle tickets, and dispensing the complimentary beverages and popcorn.

The event was sponsored by BJC Healthcare and Commerce Bank, with a sponsor for each round:  
Bank of America
Brave Inc.
Crescent Parts
Edward Jones and Ron Jagels
Ian Mackey, State Representative of the 87th District
The Metropolitan Community Church
Prismatic Events
