The fundraiser for Light up a Life has just started its spring campaign kick-off! The live auction event will be on Thursday, October 18, 2018, in the Winona National Bank lobby. The event is hosted by Light up a Life and the Winona National Bank. Proceeds and donations from the auction will help individuals and their families with Down syndrome and other disabilities who receive services from Winona DAC, Home and Community Options, Inc., Winona ORC Industries and the La Crosse Chapter of Down Syndrome serving the Greater Coulee area.
The mannequin lamps are lit up and have been created by designers from the Winona and La Crosse area. They symbolize light and hope for individuals with Down syndrome. Auction goers will see a variety of resources used in creating the lamps. Mannequin lamps have been around for decades and the styles and mediums are endless. A mannequin can be a tool but it also enables the artist to manipulate emotions or reactions of the viewer. They can be a great asset to areas of your home or office.
Lamps will be on display at Home and Community Options’ main location front windows and in the lobby of the Winona National Bank beginning in October.
You, your family or your work place can help by supporting this worthy cause and justly unique event by contacting Sheryl Miller at 507-452-7545 or Jane Bremer at 507-454-8207.
