The Circus Flora Board of Directors is thrilled to announce two major milestones for the organization: the naming of a new Managing Director, Karen Shoulders, and the commitment to a 34th season of world-class magic.
As St. Louisans pack away their swimsuits and the kids get accustomed to the back-to-school routine, at Circus Flora we are reflecting on our successful summer season.
We have such gratitude for all that we’ve accomplished together in the past year. We’re pleased to share a few highlights with you.
Flora Dora is Circus Flora’s annual gala auction, which raises funds for its year-round community outreach programs, such as “Clowns on Call,” as well as special engagements in the Big Top, such as the “Sensory Friendly Performance” for people with autism.
“Hospital clowning?! What’s that?” . . . is often the first response when I tell people about my job. So, let me tell you a little bit about our “Clowns on Call” program and our work with our primary partner, SSM Health Cardinal Glennon Children’s Hospital.
