The 8th annual “An Evening with the Cardinals” was a tremendous success! This NCCS signature event took place on Saturday, January 11, 2020, in St. Louis, MO, and featured St. Louis Cardinals Hall-of-Famers and MLB Hall-of-Famers Ted Simmons & Ozzie Smith. Dan McLaughlin, voice of the Cardinals, moderated a question-and-answer session with the players as they shared cherished and humorous memories from their time with the St. Louis Cardinals.

The evening kicked off with a VIP cocktail reception where St. Louis Cardinals Manager Mike Shildt discussed the upcoming season. The event also featured silent and live auctions featuring one-of-a-kind memorabilia and unique packages.

The NCCS was proud to honor the Woods family for the bravery and resiliency shown by their son Matthew, who is a brain tumor survivor. Watch Matthew’s inspiring story.


The 2020 event raised nearly $400,000 for families battling childhood cancer. We are deeply grateful to our sponsors, donors, and attendees for helping us ensure families like Matthew’s don’t go through childhood cancer alone.
