LUM Follies Raises $15K+ For Emergency Aid


FolliesAd-noTextThe sixth annual LUM Good Samaritan Fund Follies celebrating LUM’s 45th Anniversary was an enchanting evening for the capacity crowd — & all in support of emergency financial assistance for local families.

The LUM Follies stage show wowed the audience, and the meal was very special. LUM Follies guests bid generously on an exciting variety of Silent Auction baskets and made specific donations using the Butterfly Tree (community needs with donations amounts) — making this year’s LUM Follies the most successful yet.

The best part is that 100% of the proceeds from the LUM Good Samaritan Fund Follies go to the LUM Good Samaritan Fund. If you missed this year’s LUM Follies and still wish to make a difference by making a donation, click HERE.
