St. Louis Magazine held its 5th Annual Fall Fever Fashion Show, Sat., September 20, 2008 as over 500 people gathered at the historic building of 555 Washington Ave. in St. Louis, Mo. to view fashions from Saks Fifth Avenue's fall collection. Autism Speaks was one of the beneficiaries of the sold-out event and was featured prominently throughout the evening. A silent and live auction raised thousands of dollars for Autism Speaks, and also announced the approaching 6th annual St. Louis Walk Now for Autism on October 11, 2008.
Puzzle-shaped cookies were custom-created by Companion, and over 100 were included in gift bags at the event.
