CREW Rises Together at 40th Anniversary Gala



On Oct. 12, more than 200 of our CREW-St. Louis Members and supporters came together to celebrate 40 years of women empowering women in our industry at our 40th Anniversary Party, “Together We Rise.” The planning committee did a phenomenal job of turning The Coronado into a 1940s event, celebrating our 40 years of accomplishments and the wonderful women who got us here. 

“My favorite thing about the Anniversary party was how everyone embraced the theme and showed up in 1940s era outfits, including hairstyles. The committee went over and above to make you feel like you were in the 1940s from the drinks to the venue, music and goody bags. It was such a fun and festive event!” says Nancy Petersen. 

And festive it was! There was even a raffle for a Ruby necklace donated by Ylang Ylang and signature cocktails. Founding member, Vicki Dolan, welcomed guests and Stacey Kamps, Chapter President, acknowledged 40 years of growth and achievement. So much time and energy went into making this an event to remember, and guests most certainly will. Rowena Amelung says, “No other organization that I’m part of celebrates and highlights the special bond that women have and how this advances our industry like CREW. My favorite parts of the event were seeing and meeting the O.G. of CREW-St. Louis and dancing the night away with the 18-piece live jazz band.”

Cheers to the next 40 years!
