LUM Follies

Benefiting the LUM Good Samaritan Fund

The 8th annual LUM Follies was a wonderful evening and it was all in support of the LUM Good Samaritan Fund – the emergency financial assistance fund for local families. This year’s LUM Follies raised more than $17,800 — making this year’s LUM Follies the most successful so far.

The LUM Follies stage show was the best ever! The meal was the best ever! The friends of LUM in attendance ARE the best ever! LUM Follies attendees bid generously on an exciting variety of Silent Auction baskets, items and experiences. and made specific donations using the Pineapple Tree (community needs with donations amounts).

The best part is that 100% of the proceeds from LUM 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, go to
