A Destination

Concourse B was transformed into a moonlit Paris streetscape for Lambert-St. Louis International Airport’s 5th annual Art of Travel.  Guests were treated to a grand, red carpet entrance into the one-of-a-kind venue.  The glimmer of dozens of candles, the warm glow of street lamps, and the delicate aroma from lavender bouquets set the perfect mood.   Guests could even sample Absinthe, authentically prepared from a French fountain, and pick blooms from a Parisian flower cart.

Ooh la la

The Copper Collection, jewelry crafted by local metalsmiths from Lambert’s historic original roof, was the highlight of the evening.

bon appetit

Expert chefs with HMS Host flew in from all over the country to fill seven chef tables with the finest French cuisine.


A 5-piece jazz band and two vocalists entertained throughout the night with jazz-fusion musical styles.

The event raised NEARLY $70,000
