5th Annual Night of Art & Blues for LuMind RDS @ The Brick
Feb 24 @ 8:00 pm – 11:00 pm

Come join us at The Brick in South Bend. It is going to be a great night, with over 250 people, an open bar, lots of great food, live blues music, and a festive silent auction. We would love to have you be there to support us and have a great time. Our primary feature for the silent auction will be original high-quality art created by people with Down syndrome, often working directly with local artists. We also have a large number of other interesting items (e.g. a getaway on Lake Michigan, private dinner events, and many more) to bid on as well.
