4th Annual Summer Fundraiser. A local jazz band, String Theory Duo, will kick-off the evening during cocktails and fabulous French Hors D’oeuvres, donated by Fromage Fine Foods. For dinner, sweet and savory crepes by Perk on Church will be served, followed by delectable desserts donated by Coffee’s Country Market. Guests will dance the night away to the eclectic sound of The Side Doors, and a silent auction of miniature paintings by LAA artists will be held.

Executive Director Susan Ballek says “I’m very excited about our upcoming fundraiser, Lavender & Lyme. With a relaxed yet elegant French Country theme, this event will pay tribute to the Impressionist movement which inspired our founding members. Our Honorary Chair is artist and designer Camomile Hixon, who is helping us to create a magical and memorable setting.”
