Marti Frumhoff

Last night St. Louis lost a great friend in Marti Frumhoff. Marti was a true believer and inspiration for many.

Marti was a marketing and public relations powerhouse and she was a huge factor in building the momentum for the city's rebirth. Her annual Big BIG Tour project was a major positive force, promoting the entire city.

She was a doer until the end. On the day of her passing, she was announced as a co-sponsor for the concert to raise funds for the preservation of the Mullanphy.

When they write the story about the revitalization of St. Louis, they will need a whole chapter just for Marti.

Thank you Marti for your friendship, your vision, your passion, and the pathways you have created for the rest of us.

Dear Friends of Marti Frumhoff:

We are officially launching Marti's Tower Grove South Memorial Park site.

We need you support in making this happen and providing for long term maintenance of the Memorial in TGS.

10th ward Alderman Joe Vollmer is actively working with us to actualize our vision of the space.

We have the support of the TG Business Association.
Professional horticulturist and TGS resident Peggy Hoelting has volunteered her time and talent to designing the Memorial Garden.

We need donations to make this happen, please consider helping us honor Marti.

Please post or link this information to your blog and list servs.
