DeSales Community Housing Corporation will present its 2011 Golden Brick Awards at a reception on Thursday June 16. DeSales awards the Golden Brick to individuals, businesses and other organizations in recognition of projects that preserve and beautify the Tower Grove East and Fox Park neighborhoods.

The Golden Brick Awards reception will take place at 5:30 p.m. at one of the properties being recognized, the law offices of Beck Simmons LLC at 3500 Magnolia at Arkansas in Tower Grove East. The building had housed a laundromat for many years before being purchased and rehabilitated by the law firm. Awards will be presented to ten recipients for projects large and small. Look for yard signs identifying this year’s award winners.

The Golden Brick Awards reception is open to the public but reservations are requested. Please contact Jeff Grace at DeSales at 314-776-5444, ext. 2 or jgrace@desaleshousing.com.
