St. Louis, Mo. (March 19, 2015) – St. Louis Arc is pleased to announce the selection of William “Bill” Bolster as the recipient of the 2015 Superhero for Kids award. Bolster, a member of the St. Louis law firmLewis, Rice & Fingersh, L.C., is chairman of the Board of Directors of the St. Louis Chapter of Autism Speaks. The Superheroes for Kids award was established by the St. Louis Arc in 2013 to honor extraordinary leaders for their work on behalf of children with developmental disabilities.
“Bill Bolster has been a steadfast advocate for Missouri families who have a child with autism,” said Kathy Meath, St. Louis Arc President and CEO. “His tireless persistence in the legislature hasled to the passing of a bill which required health insurance companies to cover the diagnosis and treatment of autism in children. Bill continues to fight for Missourians by advocating for the passage of the Missouri ABLE Act. This legislation will help people and families who are trying to save for the future care of their family member with a disability, so that they can live better lives with greater financial security.”
The award and a superhero cape will be presented to Bolster on April 23, 2015 at the St. Louis Arc’sSuperheroes for Kids event at the Palladium Saint Louis. This cocktail fundraiser raises awareness about the therapy services provided by St. Louis Arc to children with disabilities.
