You may have noticed that we’ve launched our much-anticipated partnership with stl250, the organization entrusted with leading the yearlong festivities for the 250th anniversary of the founding of St. Louis. From now until mid-February, every edition of Ladue News will feature some of our most esteemed community boosters and their ‘birthday wish’ for the City of St. Louis.

All these good wishes will culminate in St. Louis’ Biggest Birthday Ball on Sunday, Feb. 16, at the Missouri History Museum. Just how big can a birthday party be? We will most definitely find out as hundreds of guests are expected to attend this once-in-a-lifetime celebration. Ladue News is proud to be a Silver Sponsor of this evening affair, so stay tuned for information about tickets and other details in our pages.

What’s your birthday wish for St. Louis? We’re gathering wishes from readers and we’d like to hear from you! Email me at or tell us on Facebook (
