"It can be hard to when a Wisconsin winter sets in," LOLA fundraising chairperson, Helen Hayhurst said. "It's cold, it's dark, and many people struggle with the 'winter blues.' This event is a great opportunity get out of the house and get together for some cocktails, conversation, and enjoy an amazing dinner to chase away the blues! Best of all, we'll be supporting LOLA at the same time!"
Other featured raffle items include a beautiful blue lapis and sterling silver pendant handmade by Silversmith Dick Barney, adult beverage gift baskets, artwork, hunting knives, and more. Attendees of LOLA's Winter Blues Fundraiser are encouraged to dress in blue for the event.
"Blue jeans, blue gowns, blue hair ... anything is fair game as long as it's blue!" Hayhurst said.
