Founder Friends reconnected over a pint at the first Founder Social Hour in St. Louis. About 30 American Youth Foundation alumni gathered at 4 Hands Brewing Co. to catch up, learn more about the latest news from the AYF, and, of course, play an ice breaker.
AYF President Anna Kay Vorsteg and Vice President Liz Marshall also flew in for the event. “It was wonderful to see so many familiar faces after so many years,” Marshall said. “St. Louis has always strongly supported the AYF, and it was great to gather with everyone in their home community.”
Advancement Manager Alice Volkov said the St. Louis event was the first of what she hopes will be more Founder Social Hour events that will take place in other cities. “As we prepare for the AYF centennial celebration in 2025, we want to connect with our AYF community across the country,” she said. “We can’t wait to see more Founder Friends in 2023.”
