Justice For All Ball 2016


To mark the 60th Anniversary of Legal Services of Eastern Missouri in 2016 we celebrated our Diamond Anniversary with the theme of "Diamonds Are Forever" for the Ball this year. The event was held on Saturday, February 27, 2016 at the Hyatt Regency at the Arch in St. Louis.

Highlights included a great Pre-Party Reception hosted by Midwest Litigation Services, a lively After Party hosted by the Young Friends of LSEM and a special Photo Booth hosted by Grayward Entertainment. The evening also featured a great selection of items in the silent auction and dancing to the sounds of Galaxy Red.

The Young Friends of LSEM also hosted the After Party again this year, which featured Strange Donuts and other snacks and live music from Dawn Weber & the Electro Funk Trio. 

Our event Co-Chairs this year were Stephanie Dorssom and Priscilla Murray, Auction Co-Chairs were Paula Finlay & Gail Weller and the Ads & Sponsorship Co-Chairs were Susan McCourt-Baltz & Alexandra Schenk. For this special anniversary event, our Honorary Chairs were John & Margie Simon.

We extend a special thank you to our wonderful chairs, committee, volunteers, sponsors, donors and all who contributed to the great success of our special 26th Annual Justice For All Ball!
