The Lamplighter Award, first presented in 2003, is dedicated as “The Morris and Ann Lazaroff Lamplighter Award,” due to decades-long guidance and support from the late Morris and Ann Lazaroff, who were instrumental in establishing Chabad in St. Louis, and to the continued commitment of the Lazaroff family.

The Lamplighter Event Celebration will feature a reception at 5 p.m. with roving entertainment, and dinner at 6:30. The Coronado Ballroom is located at 3701 Lindell Boulevard. For more information, visit
