The Kickoff Luncheon for The Salvation Army’s 70th Anniversary Tree of Lights Campaign will be held on Thursday, November 2 at 11:30 a.m. at NEO on Locust in Midtown St. Louis.

Doug Lindsay of St. Louis is the featured keynote speaker, sharing his story, entitled “Bet on Hope.”

Lindsay became sick at 21 and spent the next 11 years homebound, bed bound 22 hours a day, until he invented the innovative surgery that fixed him. He spent four years developing the surgery and building the medical team to perform it. Then, he bet his life on the operating table, and it paid off! Now, Doug shares his story and what he learned about trust, teams, innovation, leadership, and hope, as he worked tirelessly for over a decade to become a medical miracle.
