Sponsored by Auto Source St. Louis, the fourth annual Saint Louis Auto Show Charity Gala grants guests an evening of drinks, merriment, and perusal of modern chariots, with proceeds benefiting several local charities. Gala-goers can sip libations and graze on hors d'oeuvres while viewing the event's silent auction or head to the dance floor to engage in competitive toe tapping. Anytime during the event, guests can slip into the Saint Louis Auto Show to thrill oculars with views of more than 500 cars, trucks, SUVs, and concept vehicles, including luxury rides from manufacturers such as Lotus, Bentley, and Maserati. Famed performer Gerry McCambridge, whose blend of comedy and psychic intuition inspired the television show The Mentalist, reads guests' minds and misplaced grocery lists, and an after party at The Pepper Lounge keeps good times rolling until 3 a.m., all benefiting several local charities.
