What Could Be Better?
It’s almost time for the biggest party of the year! 30-A local and broker associate of The Premier Property Group, Hannah Martin, is having her Fourth Annual Birthday Fund-raiser benefiting the Cultural Arts Alliance of Walton County, Special Olympics Florida — Walton County, and Westonwood Ranch. This incredible event, La Lumière: A Metropolitan Affair, presented by Destin Plastic Surgery and Duckies Shop of Fun, will take place this Saturday, February 10, 2017, from 6:00 to 10:00 p.m. on the green at Grand Boulevard in Miramar Beach, Florida.
La Lumière: A Metropolitan Affair will be Hannah’s fourth annual fund-raiser. New this year, the event will be benefitting Cultural Arts Alliance, Special Olympics Florida — Walton County, and Westonwood Ranch. Hannah Martin’s connection with the Special Olympics started long before La Lumière derived, but her help in aiding the CAA of Walton County and Westonwood Ranch is new to this year’s fund-raising efforts.
“I’m very excited to announce our beneficiaries to this year’s event: Westonwood Ranch, Cultural Arts Alliance of Walton County, and Special Olympics Florida – Walton County,” says Martin. “When we were introduced to Westonwood Ranch, a new organization in this area, we immediately fell in love with its mission and goals to give back and better our community. Autism is such a prevalent part of the world today that touches many people. It is very rare that communities are able to provide such a cultural and progressive atmosphere for individuals with special needs. I am also thrilled to announce I am a new board member of the Cultural Arts Alliance of Walton County and am proud to have their support to help create these multifaceted programs. We saw a huge calling to bring these three organizations together to help create a better tomorrow for Walton County and our special needs community.”
The annual La Lumière has raised over $120,000 to date, and Martin hopes to grow the event to be even bigger than in years prior.
“Through ticket sales, raffle tickets, gambling, and other facets of the event, we hope to set the bar even higher,” says Martin. “We have amazing charities that we are raising funds for this year, and with the help of our community, I know we can make a huge impact on their programs.”
La Lumière: A Metropolitan Affair will be unlike any of the past fund-raising events. For a $200 donation to attend, the metropolitan themed event will include dinner, drinks, and entertainment for all, including gambling tables with roulette, blackjack, and craps. Those looking to try their luck can do so by purchasing raffle tickets in exchange for chips. Mr. Big and The Rhythm Sisters will be back on stage along with live performers. Heavy hors d’oeuvres, oysters on the half shell by 30A Oyster, wine, cocktails, spirits, and local brews will be available for guests to enjoy. Epic Photo Co.’s interactive photo booths will commemorate this Metropolitan Affair.
Guests are highly encouraged to dress in the metropolitan theme. Personal stylist, Amy Giles, of Wardrobe Made Simple is available prior to the event to style guests. 20% of proceeds from styling sessions with Wardrobe Made Simple will benefit the CAA of Walton County, Special Olympics Florida – Walton County, and Westonwood Ranch. Merry Beth Myrick Designs will be crafting hand-forged pieces, special to the event, with 25% of proceeds benefitting the CAA of Walton County, Special Olympics Florida – Walton County, and Westonwood Ranch.
