Inside the Year's End Ball for Anime St. Louis

One of St. Louis' foremost anime and cosplay groups got a jump on celebrating 2014 in style. The inaugural Year's End Ball, held November 22, 2014, at the Gateway Center in Collinsville, gathered more than 100 anime appreciators for an evening of food, fun and philanthropy. As part of the festivities, the group held a canned food drive to benefit the Collinsville Area Food Pantry.
