Event Overview

The Downtown Ball is the major annual fundraiser to benefit the Downtown St. Louis Foundation. The event celebrates Downtown with an evening
of networking, delectable delights, music and entertainment on Friday, October 14.

Net proceeds for this year's Downtown Ball will benefit the National Blues Museum, a proposed world-class cultural attraction to be located in Downtown St. Louis, focused on education, entertainment and community involvement. With 25,000 square feet of programming space, a 150-seat theater as well as technology and artifact-driven exhibits, the National Blues Museum will be a national civic treasaure honoring those who gave us the gift of modern American music.

Cocktail Attire Requested.
