What makes Project XOXO unique?
Project XOXO seeks to unite you with the St. Louis legal community in an effort to raise contributions for local homeless charities. Since 2010, Project XOXO has raised more than $448,650 in cash and in-kind donations for local St. Louis charities.
Because The Simon Law Firm, P.C. underwrites all fundraising expenses, 100 percent of the annual run/walk registration fees, pledges and donations go to the selected charities. All of the selected recipients are local organizations with a record of making a difference in the lives of St. Louisans.
