Luncheons that require a hat are a great excuse to dress to the nines. So the “Hats in the Park” fundraiser, chaired by Stephanie Cockrell, Marita Fairbanks and Lisa Holthouse, gave 420 guests the perfect opportunity to don some spectacular toppers.
Proceeds from the event, held at the McGovern Centennial Gardens and Cherie Flores Garden Pavilion, totaled nearly $400,000 to support Hermann Park Conservancy’s initiatives to improve and protect Hermann Park for generations to come.
