Instead of purchasing tickets, dressing up, hiring a babysitter
and driving to attend our annual fundraiser, take the night off!

We invite you to grab a bag of popcorn, put your feet up and watch your favorite
Netflix show.  Then, donate the money you would have spent to Loloma!

 100% of the tax-deductible donations received will directly benefit achieving our 2018 goals.
