AmerenUE, St. Louis Rams Give Customers Chance to Road Trip with the Team
AmerenUE and the St. Louis Rams have teamed up to support area families in need and to raise awareness for Dollar More \- Missouri's largest private energy assistance program.

Customers who enroll in Ameren's Dollar More program will be entered to win a Road Trip With the Rams. On Dec. 30, the first prize winner and a guest will accompany the Rams to Minneapolis on the team charter and stay at the team hotel. The winner will also receive two tickets and pre-game field passes for the Dec. 31 game with the Minnesota Vikings, before returning with the team to St. Louis later that night.

Ameren customers who are at least 21 years old are eligible to enter, and all travelers must be a minimum of 21 years of age. Customers who visit the promotions page on the St. Louis Rams Web site, www.stlouisrams.com, to make a pledge to Dollar More on or before Dec. 12, will be entered. Customers who enter by mail must include a 3" x 5" card with their name, Ameren account number, phone number and address to: Ameren, 1901 Chouteau, St. Louis, Missouri 63103, ATTN: Dollar More/Rams Road Trip. Mail-in entries must be received before Dec. 15.

In addition, 10 second prize winners will receive two tickets for the Rams vs. Washington, Dec. 24 in St. Louis.

"Many individuals and families struggle with the costs associated with maintaining a home," said Richard Mark, senior vice president of AmerenUE energy delivery. "Dollar More offers many people the helping hand they need. And thanks to our partnership with the St. Louis Rams, giving to Dollar More has never been easier. Your Dollar More contribution \- even just a dollar or two a month \- can make an enormous difference to those receiving assistance. Recipients can use Dollar More funds to pay for a variety of home energy costs, including electricity, natural gas, oil and propane."

Funded by voluntary contributions from Ameren customers and Ameren Corporation, Ameren's Dollar More helps Missouri and Illinois families stay warm in the winter, cool in the summer and healthy all year long. All Dollar More contributions are distributed through a network of human services agencies. The United Way and Ameren share administrative costs of the program so no contributions are used to cover these costs.

"The Rams are proud to team up with our valued sponsor Ameren to deliver this much needed assistance to the bi-state area," said James McCallum, vice president of business affairs for the St. Louis Rams. "Giving back to the community is a priority of the entire Rams organization and by leveraging our unique team assets and partnering with like-minded civic oriented companies such as Ameren, together we are able to make a greater impact on the lives of those who need it most."

Ameren, through its subsidiaries, serves 2.4 million electric and nearly one million natural gas customers in a 64,000-square-mile area of Illinois and Missouri.
