Jewish Light Reader’s Poll 

Jewish Light Reader’s Poll Winners

Every year the St. Louis Jewish Light holds the “Best of Simchas Readers poll”.  Readers cast their vote for local businesses that help make celebrations like Weddings and Bar and Bat Mitzvahs memorable. From best bakery to best photographer, there are 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners for each category. 


This past year Utopia Entertainment won 1st place for Best DJ and Entertainer in St. Louis. This honor holds a special place in our hearts and we owe our thanks and gratitude to those that have supported us from the beginning.  


When Utopia started in 2002, Jodi Goone’s goal was to create memorable experiences for families as they celebrated some of the most important milestone moments in their lives: Bar Mitzvah and Bat Mitzvahs. Every day, and today especially, we extend our sincerest gratitude to all of the families that have entrusted us to plan and produce these milestone moments over the past two decades.


Over the past several years, we’ve had the opportunity to travel all over the country, work on large-scale production events and create relationships with nonprofits and corporations all over the Midwest. This growth is largely because we provide exceptional value, an incredible experience, and because we treat people like family, not a number. 



As we reflect on the past 20 years,  we’re grateful to the St. Louis community, and  St. Louis, we want you to know, we believe in you too. We will continue to invest our time, talent and resources to bring more meaningful memories to this incredible city we call home.

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for helping us actualize Jodi’s dream. While she’s no longer with us, her dream and mission live on through all of us. Now, the most incredible event experience on the planet is just a phone call away. The new decade has just begun. Our family is always here to serve yours. Here’s to the next 20 years. We’re just a phone call away.
