Two Unique Experiences Benefited LUM

Thanks to East End Grill & the Samara House Trust

Two local events, offering one-of-a-kind, unique experiences, benefited the LUM Good Samaritan Fund, an emergency financial assistance program for local families.

East End Grill hosted a Dining & Wine Experience, which included an incredible four-course meal with wine pairing. This event raised $1,000. (Pictured above.)

The second event was the Samara Experience, which was an intimate tour of the John and Catherine Christian House (Frank Lloyd Wright home) and closed with a lovely reception. This event raised $540. (Pictured above.)

Special thanks to the following…
  • LUM Board Members: Alee Gunderson, Joan Low & Cheryl Fowler (pictured to right)
  • LUM Member Churches: The Church of the Blessed Sacrament & Unitarian Universalist Church of Tippecanoe County
  • Our sponsors: East End Grill & the Samara Trust
  • All who participated in the Dining & Wine and Samara Experiences

One hundred percent of the money raised at these two events ($1,540) will assist local children and families in financial crisis. If you wish to support the LUM Good Samaritan Program, please make a donation the LUM Good Samaritan Fund.
