Usually held on the 3rd Friday in February, our Trivia Night social event fundraiser is a crazy fun night of showing off what you know. If you are a trivia fanatic you wont want to miss this fun evening ... a night full of interesting facts and an open bar.
The original fundraiser for City Seniors Inc. (then Bevo 2001) became the St. Louis tradition which is now fondly remembered as Bevo Day.
"City Seniors has been transporting me to the grocery store for years. I am so lucky to have found them." Linda R

Incorporated in 1972 as a not for profit organization under 501(c)3, our founding fathers consisted of businesspersons from the Gravois Business Association who named the organization Bevo 2001. The organization has evolved as often as its name. While proud of our neighborhood roots and name(s) Bevo, Bevo 2001, Bevo Organization, Bevo Center, and Bevo Community Improvement Corporation; in 2012 the Board of Directors voted to change the name once again, this time to City Seniors, Inc., a name that better reflects the services and people we currently serve. City Seniors has streamlined its mission to focus on serving the senior population in the south St. Louis area with transportation, home-delivered meals, a senior center and a neighborhood food pantry.
Our programs and services are funded in part through grants and donations by:
The St. Louis Area Agency on Aging through a federal grant by the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services, under the provision of Title III, Older Americans Act of 1965, as amended, and/or funding of the Social Services Block Grant (Title XX of the Social Security Act)
The Department of Housing and Urban Development and the Community Development Administration
The Missouri Department of Transportation
The Senior Fund - City of St. Louis
The US Department of Energy
Sisters of St. Joseph Carondelet
The Charless Foundation
The St. Louis Area FoodBank
Feed My People
The Arnold Food Pantry
City Seniors, Inc. began as a neighborhood organization/community center that provided a place for neighborhood groups to meet, youth summer work programs, a housing corporation and a neighborhood watch program. When the St Louis Public Library closed the Long School Branch in 1987 City Seniors Inc. (Bevo 2001) convinced the library to donate the books to the Bevo Long School and City Seniors, Inc. (Bevo 2001) maintained the library for 15 additional years.
Our community is full of people who want to help. We work to help link the people providing services with the people who need them. Come connect with people in new meaningful ways.
Our amazing team of regular and part-time volunteers are committed to helping others. We take our convictions and turn them into action. Think you would be a good fit? Get in touch for more information!
