"...the name serves as a metaphor, with the members - due to their human imperfections - representing 'sinners,' who strive to be 'saints' of mercy by helping those in need."
The Circus Saints & Sinners club is a nonprofit organization dedicated to fellowship and community service through charitable giving. Serving the greater Wheeling area since 1929, the group has raised over 1.5 million dollars for local charities, including over $500K in the last decade. In 2015, it was recognized by Governor Earl Ray Tomblin with the Governor’s Service Award through Volunteer West Virginia, the State’s Commission for National and Community Service. This prestigious award honors outstanding individuals and groups involved in solving social issues through volunteer service.
The 90 for 90 Campaign was an endeavor to raise $90,000 + over a 12-month period in recognition of our 90th anniversary. Through a combination of our own fundraising events and generous corporate sponsorships, we shattered our initial goal and raised $233,000 for 14 local charitable organizations.
