Thirty-nine young women were presented to their families, guests and the Most Rev. Robert Carlson, Archbishop of St. Louis, at the 53rd annual Fleur de Lis Charity Ball at The Hyatt Regency Saint Louis at The Arch. Dressed in white gowns, donning white gloves and carrying bouquets designed by Ken Miesner Flowers, the ladies were escorted down the runway by their fathers, before the evening concluded with dancing and dinner.
Proceeds benefit SSM Cardinal Glennon Children's Medical Center. To date, the Fleur de Lis organization has donated $2.642 million to Glennon, which cares for children of all ages from St. Louis and around the world.
