Preparations are shining bright for the Suffolk Center’s annual fundraiser, Lamp It Up, which will benefit the Suffolk Center’s arts education programs for our community.  This glowing event will be held Saturday, February 23, 2019 and will feature unique and beautifully hand-decorated lampshades created and donated by individuals and businesses throughout our community.  The lampshades will be on display and available for cash purchase or will be auctioned off during the fundraiser.

Celebrity DJ WooWoo, from 94.9 The Point Radio, will be the MC for the evening, live music by The Gentlemen and Their Lady will electrify the dance floor, and guests will enjoy delicious French cuisine and libations throughout the evening.  A silent and live auction will offer opportunities to win original art, specialty gifts and amazing experiences to enjoy with friends.  Virginia Auction Company will provide an auctioneer for the event, and a list of auction items will be posted before the event!

This annual fundraiser sells out each year, so get your tickets early!  Tickets are available online and are $100 per person before Jan. 25, 2019 and $125 per person after Jan. 25.  There are many opportunities to support through the fundraiser including various levels of sponsorships, donating art, items or experiences for the live and silent auctions and purchasing tickets to participate.  For more information about the Lamp It Up Gala or decorating and entering a lampshade, please contact Susan Stone in the Development Office at 757-923-0003 Ext 102.
