On Oct. 7, the Cancer Support Community of Greater St. Louis hosted its Hope After Dark gala at PALM Health in Ladue. The annual fundraiser ensures those impacted by cancer don’t have to endure it alone; the organization’s mission is to help individuals through support groups and educational workshops. This year’s gala saw guests walking the red carpet and checking out an array of auction items. They also enjoyed champagne and risotto, as well as entertainment from the Reunion Jazz Band. The 2022 award honoree recipient was Warren L. Baxter, the executive chairman of Ameren Corporation.
“Cancer Support Community of Greater St. Louis provides comprehensive emotional and physical programs to anyone impacted by cancer, at any stage of the cancer journey, all at no cost to participants,” executive director Lori Thaman says. “As a donor-funded organization, we rely heavily on our Hope After Dark fundraising campaign and are very grateful for the generosity of our sponsors and donors.”
