Urbanistas Give Back--Gilda's Club

On Wednesday, April 1st, Urbanistas attended an event at Flemings Prime Steakhouse & Wine Bar sponsored by Gilda's Club to announce the Young Leadership Council of Gilda’s Club St. Louis.

Gilda's Club is named in honor of comedian Gilda Radner who was best known for her work on NBC’s Saturday Night Live. When describing the experience she had at a Los Angeles cancer support center, Gilda dreamed that such places could be made available for people living with cancer and their friends and families everywhere. Gilda died from ovarian cancer in 1989. But today, her spirit lives on in every Gilda's Club.

It’s the goal of the Founding Board of Gilda’s Club St. Louis to create a warm, welcoming place so that the people of the St. Louis area will never have to face cancer alone. The Founding Board believes that the establishment of a Gilda’s Club St. Louis clubhouse that is free of charge is an investment in the quality of life in the region.

If you are 40 and under and looking to get involved with the Gilda's Club Young Leadership Council, Email Michael Lane at or call 314.620.0634.
