A HUGE Thank You to Congressman Lacy Clay for coming to tour Valley Industries on Monday 10/3/2016! Congressman Clay was so kind during his tour and shook hands with many of our workers and listened to their concerns about how important their jobs at Valley are to them. Congressman Clay was very supportive and told them how proud he was to have Valley Industries in his district and would go to bat for them in Washington D.C. in support of their choice of employment in Missouri sheltered workshops!

Last year’s Mayors’ Shamrock Ball sold out, but the organizers for the 2016 event expect the upcoming evening to be the best one yet. The 9th annual Mayors’ Shamrock Ball is slated for Saturday, March 5, from 6:30 to 11 p.m. at Garden Villas North, 4505 Parker Road.
Five local municipalities—Black Jack, Florissant, Hazelwood, Ferguson, and Bellefontaine Neighbors—host the ball, which raises funds for Valley Industries Sheltered Workshop, a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization that provides dignified, meaningful employment for adults with developmental disabilities. Last year’s ball broke a record by netting more than $39,000—exceeding the 2014 total by over $4,000. The event attracted over 84 different event sponsors and donors.
“Over the past nine years, our Mayors’ Shamrock Ball has evolved into one of North County’s biggest charitable social soireés of the year. Tickets are now a precious commodity because it’s become a place to be and be seen networking with influential business leaders and elected officials from our region. Guests come dressed up in their evening gowns and green-tie formalwear, ready to dance the night away, eat delicious food and win fabulous raffle prizes for a worthy cause,” Chief Carl Wolf (ret.), Shamrock Ball Event Chairperson said.
Hosts are Mayor Norman C. McCourt of Black Jack, Mayor Thomas P. Schneider of Florissant, Mayor Matthew G. Robinson of Hazelwood, Mayor James W. Knowles III of Ferguson, and Mayor Robert J. Doerr of Bellefontaine Neighbors.

We stand in strong support of Section 14(c) of the Fair Labor Standards Act. This is critical worker protection legislation that ensures a full array of employment opportunities is available to people with disabilities. For those with the most significant disabilities, a world without Section 14(c) is a simply a world without work! Help us protect employment, opportunity and personal choice for ALL … Join us in supporting Section 14(c) and help spread the word!
