Guests were invited to the Grand Hall of the St. Louis Union Station Hotel to enjoy cocktails, hors d’ oeuvres and musical entertainment by Dennis Stroughmatt et L’ esprit Creole. The former train station turned luxury hotel and event venue was the perfect place to throw a Victorian party. Missouri Preservation has grown from a grassroots advocacy organization to Missouri's premier preservation non-profit, supporting hundreds of members and offering a variety of programs and services to the community statewide. The evening was underwritten by Mary Pillsbury Wainwright and she, along with Elizabeth Sayad were co-chairs for the evening.
