The 61st Annual Fleur de Lis Charity Ball took place Saturday, Dec. 28, 2019, at the Hyatt Regency Saint Louis at The Arch. Mrs. Peter Fonseca was ball chairman this year. Mrs. Jeffry A. Schmitt is the president of the Fleur de Lis organization. As is its tradition, the 2019 Fleur de Lis Charity Ball, at which 26 young women were presented to The Most Reverend Mark S. Rivituso, Auxiliary Bishop of Saint Louis, will benefit SSM Health Cardinal Glennon Children's Hospital. To date, the Fleur de Lis has contributed a total of $2.967 million to SSM Health Cardinal Glennon. Last year, the hospital provided more than $6 million in free care to children from St. Louis and the surrounding bi-state area.
