September 20, 2019 – For the fifth consecutive season, the St. Louis Blues and Ameren Missouri will once again present the Power Play Goals for Kids program during the 2019-20 season. The program, which raised more than $20,000 last year, will launch during the Blues first home game, on Wednesday, Oct. 2 vs. the Washington Capitals.
For every power play goal the Blues score during their regular season, Ameren Missouri will donate $500 to a local children’s charity. Four finalist charities will be announced on Saturday, Nov. 30 with the winning charity to be decided by public vote. Online voting will be open Sunday, Dec. 1 – Friday, Jan. 31 and the winning charity will be announced on Thursday, Feb. 6. A check presentation will take place at the end of the Blues season on Thursday, April 2.
“This season, every power play goal scored by the champion St. Louis Blues is a reason to celebrate for local children's charities," said Michael Moehn, chairman and president, Ameren Missouri. "That's because Ameren Missouri is once again partnering with the Blues for Kids on the Power Play Goals for Kids program, a great way to support local communities and help children. This program is just another reason to cheer whenever the champs score on a power play."
During the 2018-19 season, local charity STL Youth Sports Outreach was named the Power Play Goals for Kids winner of $10,800. The organization decided to split their winnings - and an additional $3,000 donated by Ameren Missouri and Blues for Kids - equally between the three runners-up; Project Backpack, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Eastern Missouri and Super Sam Foundation.
In recognition of winning the Stanley Cup, Ameren Missouri doubled the payout to $24,600 which was split between all four charities.
