On Friday February 6th, The 12th Annual MindsEye Soiree: Pour La Vue set new records for attendance and funds raised. The record setting 245 guests and valued sponsors helped raise over $95,000.
Soiree emcee, Mike Roberts of KSDK was able to keep the crowd informed and energized about the event throughout the evening. Fletcher Lane in his first year as auctioneer for the event set a new Soiree milestone. He rallied the crowd to support MindsEye with over $21,000 during the Broadcast Benefactor portion of the silent auction.
The live auction, silent auction, Cajun food, and musical entertainment were all great parts of the Soiree. However, the highlight of the night were speeches by honorary chairman Dr. Henry Allhoff and guest speaker Jesuita Tabor. Both speakers were able to passionately explain to attendees the importance of MindsEye.
We want to thank all of our sponsors, guests, and volunteers. Very special thanks goes to our committee led by Debbie Andrews for making this the best Soiree ever!
