MindsEye’s 11th annual Soiree Pour La Vue: An Evening for Sight was one for the record books. This year’s event raised over $84,000 for the organization, which breaks last year’s record setting mark of $75,170.
The crowd of 200 people consisting of MindsEye volunteers, community partners, oblate priests and others were treated to a night full of fun and heart-warming activities. St. Louis’ own Funky Butt Brass Band got the party started with live music. Party goers started to place their bids at the silent auction tables filled with sports memorabilia, gift certificates, and other items of interest. KSDK meteorologist Mike Roberts was the emcee for the rest of the evening, which included a live auction and a very heartfelt speech from former Belleville police officer, current MindsEye listener John Brough.
The favorite parts of the evening will differ depending who you ask, but the reason everybody came out for the event will be universal. The crowd gathered to support MindsEye and the mission it embodies. A mission that was started 41 years ago by Father Boniface Wittenbrink, OMI.
