The Roaring 20s-themed event was the first of its kind for the hospital and raised more than $250,000 to support the new Shriners Hospital under construction near Kingshighway. The event was timed to celebrate the 90th anniversary of the founding of Shriners Hospital in St. Louis in 1924 and designed to also be a homecoming celebration for former patients of the hospital. More than 300 Shriners, current and former patients, current and former employees, as well as friends of the hospital attended. Amongst a combined team effort from the hospital, the two main event coordinators were Terri Andrews, Development Officer III, and Tammy Robbins, Director of Public and Community Relations. Charlie Brennan of KMOX and KETC’s Donnybrook served as master of ceremonies during the gala which featured a presentation by two of the hospital’s current Patient Ambassadors, Madelyn Hubbs, 14 and Katie Ladlie, 16.
