Mission: St. Louis hosted its annual Night for the Town gala at the Four Seasons Hotel St. Louis in the fall. With some people attending in person and some attending virtually, Mission: St. Louis raised more than $457,000 to help fund its programs. The gala’s theme of “do hard things” resonated with participants of Mission: St. Louis’ programs and donors alike.
The night featured drinks, dinner, live and silent auctions, and words from Josh Wilson, the organization’s executive director, and Jason Watson, its vice president of workforce development. Mission: St. Louis seeks to empower people to transform their lives, families and neighborhoods.
"Every time we do Night for the Town, we have the opportunity to come together and celebrate stories," Wilson says. "That's what this night is about. We want to build relationships and empower our community to change their lives and change their city, and then come together and celebrate those hard things."
