MindsEye Drive-In

Saturday, June 12th, 2021, 6:00 PM

Sheldon Concert Hall Parking Lot

MindsEye’s 18th annual “gala” event will look different this year, but will be no less thrilling!

Thanks to a partnership with Chef Liz Schuster of Tenacious Eats, the first-ever MindsEye Drive-In will be a night of movies, themed courses, signature cocktails, music, auctions, and more… all from the safety and comfort of your own drive-in lot!

The Drive-In will raise over twenty percent of MindsEye’s annual operating budget. These vital funds will open doors of opportunity, accessibility, and connection for Greater St. Louis community members who are blind and visually-impaired. This event will be attended by many influential individuals, organizations, and citizens dedicated to supporting MindsEye’s mission and vision.


Non-attendees can participate in the silent auction by registering at the above link!
