Port of Hope — Wonderful Success


$20,000 Raised for LUM Immigration Services

The 2nd annual LUM Immigration Clinic benefit, Port of Hope, was a wonderful success raising more than $20,000 for the LUM Immigration Clinic.

Port of Hope exceeded everyone’s expectations for being a fun gathering of 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, and several local restaurants provided the delicious international menu.

The best part of Port of Hope was the positive energy created by the guests themselves. Thanks to all who attended and contributed.
