This will be Martin’s fifth annual fundraiser to celebrate her birthday. The “La Lumière” events have raised over $185,000 to-date, but Martin is always looking to the future and hopes to grow the event to be even bigger and better than in years past.
“Through ticket sales, raffle, auction, and other facets of the event, we hope to set the bar even higher than before,” Martin said. “We have amazing charities that we are raising funds for this year, and with the help of our community, I know we can make a huge impact in their programs.”
Guests are highly encouraged to get creative with Grecian inspired cocktail attire for Friday night’s “La Lumière: Feast of the Gods." Attendees will be asked to elevate their Grecian ensemble to black tie formal for Saturday night’s “La Lumière: Party of the Gods."
