Tower Grove Park, the area’s only National Historic Landmark park, got a visit from P. Allen Smith in May. He emceed the 2012 Flower Power fundraiser and did a fantastic job.
He and his crew spent a week in St. Louis filming for Smith’s upcoming shows and have this wonderful video on his YouTube channel:
Flower Power is a major fundraiser for the park (I’ve been a member of the Friends of Tower Grove Park board for a number of years now) and thanks to underwriting by Harris Bank, Laclede Gas and an anonymous donor, all the proceeds from the sold-out luncheon went directly to the Park. I continued my role as emcee again this year.
