the hummels

If you’re ever in St. Louis stop by and see these two at “Hummel’s on Broadway”. Hummel’s is a pub/dive bar located at Broadway and Blow St. where you are sure to have a great time.

It always fills my heart with joy and hope when I see people in our community give back to help others. They are having an event called “Hummel’s Kicks Cancer to the Curb” on July 16 between 2:00 pm – 6:00 pm. But guess what? You don’t have to be present at the bar to contribute. Just follow this link and help the Hummel’s make this the best event ever for this amazingly worthwhile charity.
