The Reason We Chose St. Louis Children’s Hospital

In 2015, our son, David Schaefer, was born with a couple of rare and severe medical birth defects which required him to live in the NICU in St. Louis Children’s Hospital. The odds were against him from day one; however, his fighting spirit along with the incredible care he received allowed us to spend six months with our son. David, unfortunately, lost his battle with the illnesses in early 2016 but he continues to live on in our hearts and memories.

During our time at St. Louis Children’s Hospital, we met many other families whose lives had been affected by the illness of their child. We know from our experience how challenging it can be for any family to deal with a sick child who is receiving medical care. We saw the generous things that people and businesses in the community did for Children’s Hospital and are forever grateful for how they helped both the children receiving care and the families supporting them. Going through this experience was the most difficult time of our lives. However, we are blessed to be in a position to give back to those who helped David and other children like him. This is why we’ve chosen St. Louis Children’s Hospital to be the recipient of our annual charitable fundraiser. With your participation and donations, together we can help to improve the lives of these children and their families.

Giving Back to the Community

Giving back to the communities that support us has been a part of our culture at Schaefer Autobody Centers since our opening in 1985. In 2018, we raised the bar by hosting our first annual charity golf tournament to benefit St. Louis Children’s Hospital. We know that many families have experienced the challenges of raising a child with severe illness or medical issues and how valuable it can be to have such a great resource in our hometown.

St. Louis Children’s Hospital is one of the premier children’s hospitals in the United States. Charitable donations cover the costs of programs, services and treatments proven to improve patient outcomes, but are not eligible for reimbursement by insurance companies. It allows Children’s Hospital to make decisions not according to what makes fiscal sense, but according to what is in keeping with their mission to do what’s right for kids.

Thank you to all of our sponsors, donors, volunteers and golfers. We wouldn’t of been able to do this without you!
