DNA Fundraiser Spark on Oct. 14

Support Downtown and the Downtown Neighborhood Association by attending the best rooftop party of the year! Cocktail attire with a little sparkle is encouraged.

When, where, and what is Spark?

Spark takes place from 6:30-11pm on Saturday, October 14 on the rooftop of the Arcade Building with panoramic views of Downtown St. Louis and features music from many genres provided by Bump and Hustle’s DJ MAKossa, food from some of Downtown’s best restaurants, local craft beer along with wine and cocktails, and an excellent silent auction.

We will also be recognizing some of the people who make Downtown a great place to live, work, and play with a brief awards ceremony.

This year’s award winners are:

  • Most Valuable Resident – Laura Griffin
  • Resident Rookie of the Year – Tavon Brooks
  • Small Business of the Year – 314 The City Bar
  • Corporate Partner of the Year – Schlafly

Buy your tickets on Eventbrite here.

Proceeds benefit the St. Louis Downtown Neighborhood Association, a 501(c)(3) grassroots non-profit that undertakes community building and organizing activities in order to connect people, create change, and positively impact the historic and economic nucleus of our city and region.
