The 7th Annual S’mores & Champagne Gala was a success! Three hundred people joined us at the Woodlands Waterway Marriott to celebrate Lutherhill. Guests mixed, mingled and gave generously! The evening began with cocktails and piano music by Bishop Mike Rinehart as the Silent Auction got into full swing. After a delicious surf & turf dinner, the ever entertaining Live Auction kicked-off and raised over $40,000. The new Paddles Up portion of the Gala gave our guests the opportunity to raise the miniature canoe paddles and give to the Galveston Zion Retreat Center. The canoe paddles were raised often and over $15,000 was raised. Attendees were also treated to a new auction, the Big Board, that hightlighted many of the popular Lutherhill packages. The night was an incredible and Lutherhill is grateful to everyone that supported the Gala. In total, over $135,000 was raised!
Our sincerest thanks….
