Since 2016, Kids In The Middle hosts a 36-hour giving campaign, Giving 4 Kids, where all donations are quadrupled, thanks to our generous matching donors. The 2021 Giving 4 Kids campaign will be held on Tuesday, May 18th – Wednesday, May 19th, where Kids In The Middle will work to raise $150,000.

The Swirl, Sip and Savor Tasting Event includes unlimited tastings of a variety of wines, local craft breweries, specialty cocktails, tastes of signature dishes from local St. Louis restaurants, live music, and a raffle auction.

Proceeds from this event will provide counseling for children and families transitioning to a new way of life before, during, and after separation, divorce, and remarriage.

After much consideration, Kids In The Middle has made the difficult decision to cancel the 2021 Annual Swirl, Sip & Savor Tasting Event. As you know, our world is continuously changing due to the impact of COVID-19, and the safety and well-being of our guests is our number one priority.
