On September 28, 2022, nearly 1,000 members of the St. Louis business community joined Mayor Tishaura O. Jones and the St. Louis Development Corporation to recognize the individuals and companies who have impacted St. Louis over the past year. The atmosphere of the 2022 Mayors Business Luncheon was electric as St. Louis Mayor Tishaura O. Jones was greeted with a standing ovation from the audience as they witnessed the history of St. Louis’ First African American Female Mayor taking the stage to host the 20th Annual Mayor’s Business Luncheon! In addition, the 2022 Mayor’s Business Luncheon was the largest luncheon in the history of the event.
Jasmine Huda of Fox 2 News, served as the Mistress of Ceremonies for the event. Congratulations to the honorees, Mayor Jones, SLDC President & CEO Neal Richardson and all who were in attendance at the stellar event which included most of the City of St. Louis’ Who’s Who.
