Darcy Oake, Canadian-born Master illusionist and sleight-of-hand artist, thrilled the audience during the 2016 LUMEN Fundraising Gala, as he performed astonishing magic tricks and one death-defying escape! Throughout the evening guests enjoyed a delicious sit-down dinner and drinks, a silent auction and raffle, and even participated in a rousing live auction, hosted by celebrity auctioneer Danny Hooper. Together, we raised $53,000 in support of science education in our community.
The 2015 LUMEN Fundraising Gala was an incredible success! With all of your help, we raised over $83,000! Canadian comedian Brent Butt stole the show with his brand of quirky stand-up comedy.
The inaugural LUMEN Fundraising Gala was in 2014. The theme was Indiana Jones and featured a giant runaway boulder, fertility idol swaps and a live band! The event brought people together from all over the city in support of an amazing cause.
