Komen St. Louis’ 2014 Young Philanthropist of the Year: Jessica Kuca

Our community benefits from so many individuals and groups who are dedicated to the fight against breast cancer. We’ve seen a lot of creative, personal ways to generate awareness and raise funds to help save lives and end breast cancer.

We are particularly inspired by the younger philanthropists among us who are making an impact in our mission so early in their lives.

At our 2014 Power of a Promise luncheon, we presented our 2014 Komen St. Louis Young Philanthropist Award to one dedicated young girl in our community, Jessica Kuca.

For the past six years, Jessica has organized a lemonade stand for charity, allocating part of the proceeds to Komen St. Louis.

Over these past six years, Jessica has raised nearly $8,500 for local breast health programs and breast cancer research funded by Komen St. Louis.

She is proof that you’re never too young to make a positive impact in your community.

Thank you, Jessica! (We love your sparkly pink dress and your sparkling personality!)
