Vocalists Kim Massie and Erin Bode donated their talents, and the Hyatt donated the Faust’s/Pierre’s space, food and beverages, and AmerenUE provided a small grant, so that 100% of all ticket sales will support the efforts of the all-volunteer charity. With only a three-week window, the sold out charitable event raised $50,000, which included a special auction hosted by chair emeritus J. Kim Tucci.
