BRIDGETON, Mo. – Each month, Fox 2 News and KPLR 11 have honored local heroes with our Proud to Serve awards. On Thursday, those first responders, military members, and veterans gathered for a year-end party at Art Van Furniture in Bridgeton.

Each of our Proud to Serve award recipients were given a $250 gift card from Imo’s Pizza and a $500 gift card courtesy of Art Van Furniture.

Our own Dan Gray emceed a program recognizing each of them for their selfless service to our community and country.

Dan also interviewed Jay Steinback, the president and CEO of Art Van Furniture, who had a special announcement about donations to two very important organizations.
