Lighthouse to have open house June 24

-A +A
Thanks to all who contributed to the success of the fourth annual Celebrity Waiter Luncheon benefiting the Lighthouse Counseling & Family Resource Center in Lincoln: to the business community, our elected officials and our event partner, Buonarroti Ristorante. A special thanks to board member Bonnie Gore of Kaiser Permanente and event planners Sarah Keesling and Jamie Carlson for their tireless work in heading up this year’s event. It was a great team effort, with all our board members and staff working hard and rallying support every step of the way. Way to go team! It’s clear that the level of energy and community commitment embracing the Lighthouse is enormous. We raised over $30,000 from the luncheon, thanks to our in-kind, individual and corporate sponsors; our local elected officials and other notable community leaders who waited on tables; our crowd of generous “fans” who attended the luncheon; and many others. And if this good news wasn’t enough, I have more. Please join us for our Open House on June 24 from 5 to 7 p.m. to celebrate our new location at 427 A St. where we’ll officially "cut the ribbon," thank our building partners and serve up some great food. If you’d like to be part of the fun, please RSVP by calling 645-3300 or by e-mailing I hope to see you at our Open House to celebrate our continued success! Jennifer Pereira, chairwoman, Lighthouse board of directors
