The inaugural LUM Immigration Clinic benefit, Port of Hope, was a smashing success raising more than $10,000 for the LUM Immigration Clinic.
Port of Hope exceeded everyone’s expectation for being a fun gathering of individuals who are strong advocates for the work of LUM especially of the LUM Immigration Clinic. Clave Caribe provided the live music which kept the crowd dancing with an occasional conga line.
Zach Medler of ZMed Studios spent most of the event creating an original piece of art which was eventually was auctioned off for $500. The international menu from several local restaurants was delicious and popular. Fine art from various international students from Purdue as well as from Petronio Bendito were popular items in the silent auction — drawing generous bids from the guests. The best part of Port of Hope was the lively and upbeat atmosphere created by the guests themselves. Port of Hope was memorable as well as successful. Thanks to all who attended and contributed.
