Forest Park Forever, the private nonprofit conservancy that partners with the City of St. Louis to care for Forest Park, held An Enchanted Evening in Forest Park to celebrate the conclusion of Forever: The Campaign for Forest Park’s Future, the most ambitious fundraising effort in Forest park’s history.

Guests enjoyed cocktails, hors d’oeuvres, and the music of the Tom Byrne Jazz Quartet before sitting down to dinner with remarks by Lesley Hoffarth, P.E., President and Director of Forest Park Forever, Greg Hayes, and Lawrence Thomas. John Ferring, Forever Campaign Chairman, provided a special tribute to the late Jack C. Taylor, Honorary Chair of the Forever campaign, and a transformative donor toward the initiative.
