We are delighted to be chairing the 2024 Saint Louis Ballet Gala; the excitement is building. Join us at our new location and the home of the ballet, the Blanche M. Touhill Performing Arts Center on Sunday, April 28, 2024, after a moving performance of The Sleeping Beauty. This fabulous evening will feature a live and silent auction, meaningful giving opportunities, an intimate dinner in the Lee Theatre and so much more. Proceeds from evening’s festivities will benefit Saint Louis Ballet’s mainstage season as well as community outreach programs, which make the wonder, discipline and delight of ballet available to over 500 children in resource-challenged schools and community centers around the St. Louis metropolitan area.

A highlight of this year’s event will be the presentation of the 2024 Reverence Award. This year’s  recipients will be Patricia and Dr. Leo Whiteside. We are privileged to recognize these two patrons of the arts for their commitment to the advancement of the Saint Louis Ballet over the years and their passion for community betterment.

We invite you to join us on the Event Committee and support this preeminent institution in furthering its efforts to enrich the community and provide an appreciation of the performing arts through the highest quality performances of classical, neoclassical and contemporary ballets as well as outreach activities.
