Diana, the People’s Princess Exhibit Fundraiser


In January, St. Louis Cares Southeast Alumni was granted an extraordinary opportunity to conduct its first series of fund raising events to further its mission.

The Home Builders Association of St. Louis and Eastern Missouri granted our group permission to exclusively host a private reception and two private showings of the Diana, The People's Princess Exhibit which was appearing with its annual Home Builders & Garden Show in late February.

The reception was held to welcome the curator and owner of the exhbiit, Maureen Dunkel of Tampa, Florida.
The event took place at the home of Mary Strauss, owner of the Fox Theatre and widely recognized patron of the arts in St. Louis on the evening prior to formal opening of the exhibit.

A total of 36 guests attended, met Maureen and received a signed, autographed copy of her book, My Decade with Diana. Two private, early morning viewings of the exhibit, complete with four gowns Diana wore during important events during her lifetime, were on display at the Edwards Jones Dome, along with video presentations and memorabilia of her iconic life.
