Thank You to Everyone That Attended the 2018 Hat Luncheon
Forest Park Forever welcomed more than 1,100 Park supporters to the World's Fair Pavilion for its annual Hat Luncheon on Thursday, June 7. This always popular event is the single largest annual fundraiser for Forest Park, supporting the important work our nonprofit conservancy does to restore, maintain and sustain Forest Park along with the City of St. Louis.
Guests donned their fanciest fascinators and chicest chapeaus in anticipation of winning terrific prizes for their creative and stylish millinery, all while supporting Forest Park. Between ticket sales, sponsorships and a raffle, the event raised more than $450,000 to support critical maintenance of Forest Park.
Many thanks to the event emcee KMOV’s Courtney Bryantand co-chairs Sharon Price John and Leah Merrifield.
