Broker Associate Hannah Martin, of Coastal Luxury Real Estate, announced “La Lumière: Party of the Gods,” presented by Destin Plastic Surgery and Duckies Shop of Fun, raised $60,000 for three local charities including South Walton Academy, Special Olympics Florida — Walton County, and Westonwood Ranch.
“It warms my heart to see our dedicated community come together in this way, year after year,” says Martin. “I feel so blessed and inspired to live in a community that stands up with you. This started as a small event that has turned into a mission for change for several non-profits in our local area that can truly make a long-term difference for the kids.”
Held over the course of three days, Feb. 8-10, at the Hilton Sandestin Beach Golf Resort and Spa, the fifth annual event drew crowds of over 600 in support of the three local charities. The funds raised by La Lumière will provide Westonwood Ranch and the South Walton Academy each with $25,000, along with $10,000 for Special Olympics Florida — Walton County.
“Looking at this check, there really aren’t words to describe the gratitude I, and the family at Westonwood feel,” said Lindy Wood, founder of Westonwood Ranch. “When you are building a charity from the ground up, every single cent needed to construct the foundation of what will begin a lifetime of change for the special needs community counts.”
The annual birthday bash was started in 2014 after Martin’s mentor and business partner, Jimbo Holloway, approached her about raising seed money for Special Olympics Florida — Walton County. Since its inception, the party has raised nearly $200,000 and has begun generously donating to a multitude of local charities.
