26. March 2012


From left: Carol Voss, Tom Voss, Marsha Rusnack and Donna WilkinsonWe were honored to host Dance St. Louis last month for their annual Ballet Ball fundraiser where they raised nearly $200,000. This is the most money they’ve netted since executive director emeritus Sally Brayley Bliss’ farewell gala in 2006. Deb Peterson from had this to say about the event:

“Some 275 arts enthusiasts were on hand, dancing to the sounds of Arvel and Company. The crowd enjoyed a special dance performance by students from the Central Visual & Performing Arts High School, which was dedicated to the evening’s honorees, Marsha and Bill Rusnack. The Rusnacks’ daughter, Dr. Susan Rusnack, a surgeon in NYC, was on hand for the occasion with her husband, Andrei Duman. Michael Uthoff, executive and artistic director of Dance St. Louis, was also joined by an out-of-town guest, his daughter Michelle Uthoff, who was in from Denver…”

“Maggie and staff, we just wanted to express how much we truly appreciate everyone at the Palladium – our wedding was absolutely PERFECT! The service, food & atmosphere were incredible and we couldn’t have asked for anything better! Everyone truly helped to make our night so special and we can’t thank you more! Maggie, thank you so much for answering my countless emails and questions – you were fabulous and I couldn’t have done it without you! You helped make our dream into a reality and we are forever grateful! I cannot say enough wonderful things about the Palladium and everyone there – thank you again for a perfect and memorable night for both us and our guests!”


“All I’ve heard from everyone was ‘What a great event’ it was and ‘How much they enjoyed it!’ It was definitely a successful event!”


“Our main contact was Maggie Eichwald who was professional and always prompt in answering questions whether by e-mails, phone calls or in person. She was always accommodating and seemed at ease working with our staff and committee.

 This venue is first-class and the food was beautiful as well as tasty!

 We had a great experience at The Palladium and are appreciative to the owners, managers and everyone for accommodating us.”


 ”We could not have chosen a better venue for our wedding than the Palladium! We had ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception all at the venue and the set-up was perfect for us and our guests. The upgrades that are included (linens, chairs, lighting, etc.) made life so much easier for us than having to rent those items out. The service and food was impeccable – our guests could not stop raving about every aspect! Maggie was extremely helpful and fabulous in every way! Even being extremely particular and a semi-control freak, she showed me so much knowledge and attention to detail, and it was great to be able to have so much confidence in her to take some stress away from myself. I could not say enough great things about the Palladium – no bride and groom can be disappointed having their wedding there! We had the most amazing day and cannot thank the Palladium, Maggie and staff for all they did for us to make it happen!”
