ST. LOUIS - The St. Louis Blues have partnered with Tito's Handmade Vodka to create four unique adult beverages to benefit charities in St. Louis and elsewhere in the United States.
The Blues will donate $1 from each Tito's-inspired drink sold at four upcoming home games to help the charitable organizations. In addition, Tito's will donate $3,500 to each charity.
Tito's Handmade Vodka selected the four charities based on the company's longstanding and continued partnerships through their own charitable programs: Love, Tito's and Vodka for Dog People.
To purchase a Tito's-inspired drink, fans must be of legal drinking age at time of purchase. Drinks are available at Portals 32, 34, 48, 50, 62, Brews of the Lou, Top Shelf and the Bud Light Sports Pub at the following games:
Jan. 11 vs. New York Rangers

Animal Protective Association of Missouri

Proceeds at this game will benefit the Animal Protective Assocation (APA) of Missouri, which is dedicated to bringing people and pets together, advancing humane education, and creating programs beneficial to the human/animal bond. Last year, the APA adopted over 4,000 pets - a new record! For more information, please visit www.apamo.org.

Stray Rescue of St. Louis

The organization was founded by Randy Grim in 1998 and rescues homeless and abused animals. The organization's first shelter opened in Lafayette Square, just six minutes from Enterprise Center, after Grim used his life savings to complete his vision and end the suffering for many animals in St. Louis.

Feb. 25 vs. Chicago Blackhawks
Tito's All-American Lemonade
Alex's Lemonade Stand
Tito's All-American Lemonade simply pairs vodka and lemonade, which go together like Jaden Schwartz and Brayden Schenn on the first line. Proceeds from sales of this drink on Feb. 25 will benefit Alex's Lemonade Stand.
Alexandra "Alex" Scott was diagnosed with childhood cancer just before her first birthday. When she was four, she told her parents she wanted to set up a lemonade stand in her front yard that gave all the profits to doctors to help find a cure. With the help of her older brother, Patrick, the lemonade stand was able to raise $2,000 in just one day. In 2004, Alex passed away at the age of eight, but her lemonade stands and inspiration helped raised more than $1 million toward finding a cure for the disease that took her life.

Tito's American Pup
Dogs For Our Brave in St. Louis
