Join us for a special evening of cocktails and hors d’oeuvres while discovering the Delmar DivINe with Jorge Riopedre, Executive Director. The Delmar DivINe, founded by Maxine Clark, is a social innovation, high-impact historic building rehabilitation (formerly St. Luke’s Hospital site) that is setting an example for community development, social improvement and collaboration in St. Louis and the nation. It is the first collaboration space dedicated to maximizing human and financial capital of St. Louis’ social initiatives, especially among health, education and human services organizations. The Delmar DivINe is a mixed use project that includes 150 affordable apartments, offices, a cafe and a nonprofit collaborative.
The event begins at 5:00pm with mix and mingle, followed by tours of the building and Q&A from 5:15-6:00pm, and then plenty of time for socializing from 6:00-7:00pm.
