Amilia and Michelle in the garden.
Amilia’s Light supports programs that are empowering and changing the lives of women who are victims of human trafficking. On May 24, they will be hosting an event to help continue their mission: the Amilia’s Light Garden Party will be held from 6:00-10:00 p.m. at Michelle Luhrmann’s home at 26 Loeffler Lane.
Life is precious and can change in an instant. One night after being lovingly tucked in bed, a tragic house explosion killed five-year-old Amilia and seriously wounded her mother, Michelle. Touched and honored by the outpouring of support and love from her community, Michelle and the non-profit she founded, Amilia’s Light, are determined to give back to others forced to endure the unthinkable by planting seeds of hope.
Commemorating the 15th anniversary of Amilia's passing and the last year that the Garden Party will be in Amilia's Garden, this year’s event is not to be missed. Survival stories will inspire attendees, as will Amilia's Light's plans to expand locally. Guests will savor delicious food, sip a signature Amilia’s Light cocktail, and dance under the stars with the Road Dawgs.
Amilia's Light is in need of volunteers to help make this free event a success.
Those who cannot attend the Garden Party on May 24 are asked to consider a donation.
