Star Power

So many times, wonderful organizations have fundraisers that could be much more, um, wonderful. Snaps to Young Variety for not falling into this category. These supporters of St. Louis Variety, a charity that assists disabled children (, plan a fun, entertaining event each year called Night of the Rising Stars. And it’s time for this party at the Pageant (6161 Delmar Boulevard) once again. The evening begins at 8 p.m. and features complimentary food and Anheuser-Busch products. Sets by local favorites Brian Elder, Jonathan Cour, DJ Andrew Mullins and Todd Mosby keep the party going until the wee hours — 1 a.m.! — and silent-auction items are up for the buying to supplement Young Variety’s fundraising efforts. To help the group along, go ahead and get your $41 ticket now from Ticketmaster (314-241-1888 or, at the Pageant or by calling Variety at 314-453-0453, extension 15; admission costs $50 at the door.
