Springboard’s annual fundraising gala was held at the elegant and historic Saint Louis Woman’s Club featuring cocktails, a gourmet seated dinner, and a lively preview performance by Casual Cabaret, which will run at the Kranzberg Arts Center in Grand Center. The performance held “a little something for everyone,” said Stellie Siteman, Casual Cabaret director and Springboard teaching artist. Carol and Tom Voss, president and CEO of Ameren UE, were honorary chairs of this event.

All proceeds from the event will allow Springboard to continue providing arts and cultural integration programs in underserved city and county schools. Springboard’s programming inspires their audiences to embrace knowledge and new experiences that broaden their horizons. Springboard is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that offers more than 177 unique educational programs to close to 78,000 students in metro St. Louis.
