An Evening to Remember

The event was held at St. Mary Church. The Fall Auction committee spent many hours transforming the space into a beautiful gala. There were about 150 people in attendance. They had the opportunity to bid on many beautiful items that were donated by area businesses and St. Louis Center supporters. The meal was prepared and served by The Moveable Feast. Crystal McKinsey, a young Broadway singer who has recently moved to the Chelsea area, even performed several songs before dinner.
