May 11th, 2018 by

Frank Leta Charitable Foundation of St. Louis

It’s no secret we have a passion for St. Louis. The Leta family has resided in St. Louis for generations, and we love to do everything we can to give back to this beautiful city we call home, which is why the Frank Leta Charitable Foundation was formed.

As part of our mission, we partnered with the St. Patrick Center, whose mission is to “provide opportunities for self-sufficiency and dignity to people who are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless.”

The Frank Leta Charitable Foundation has provided reliable transportation to individuals through the St. Patrick Center, as well as members of the Epworth Children and Family Services programs, and various individuals through out the greater St. Louis area who had needs, as well.

Our GM, Steve Brown, explains, “St. Patrick’s Center transforms the lives of so many disadvantaged members of our community, and we are honored to be a part of their mission.  Whether it’s an employee volunteering at an event, our sponsorship of the Irish Open, or a vehicle donation to one of their clients, we want to help increase the positive impact they can make in the St. Louis community.”

St. Patrick Center Partnership and Donations

The Frank Leta Charitable Foundation’s mission is to positively impact our community by providing safe and reliable transportation to those in need, therefore, we’ve partnered with St. Patrick Center and, as of 2018, provided three of their clients with vehicles to help them on their way to independence.


In addition, the Frank Leta Automotive Group has also sponsored St. Patrick Center’s annual Irish Open golf tournament for the last five years, being the presenting sponsor for the last two, and again this year.

This year’s Irish Open will kick off on Saturday, June 2nd at the St. Louis Union Station Hotel with a gala, including a silent auction, cocktails, live music, a live auction, and various forms of entertainment. The golf tournament will take place the following Monday morning at Norwood Hills Country Club at 10am, followed by drinks, dinner and an awards ceremony.
