LRMA Gala 2022


Saturday, December 3
6:30 p.m. until midnight


Online Silent Auction:


The Eastman Memorial Foundation Board of Directors is pleased to announce that Susie and Lampkin Butts will chair The Gold Ball:  LRMA Gala MMXXII to be held Saturday evening, December 3.   The Butts have tapped Mary Ella and Clay Johnson as Premier Auction chairmen and Hilary and Michael Burroughs as Auction Committee chairs.   Jo Lynn McLeod and Cathy Padgett will head up decorations and Lauren and Casey Butts will provide leadership for Food and Beverage.  Catherine and Steven Nowicki will chair the Gala Preview Party on Thursday evening, December 1.


The LRMA Gala remains the single largest fundraiser for LRMA with proceeds benefiting programs and exhibitions and the full and vigorous support of our donors is needed this year, as always before, to accomplish our mission.


Auction bidding will be done online again this year and you do not have to attend the Gala in order to bid.  Once members receive their Gala invitation, we encourage them to visit the auction site and get registered.  Waiting to register until event time poses a risk of technical difficulty which can result in a delay in bidding.  We also encourage our members to share the auction site link with friends and family so they, too, can bid.  Complete auction instructions will be mailed closer to time of the event.
