House that Lulu Built holds fun fundraiser


GREENVILLE — “We are still feeling the love from our 2nd annual fundraiser “Art & Auction – Disco Night! A truly groovy night made possible with the help of so many people,” said Cami Snyder. “It is amazing what you can accomplish with our incredible committee – Nicki, Mary, Lani, Becky, Elaine & Sarah, thank you!”

The evening started with a time to tour the house that displayed the seven local artists – Natalie, Stephanie, CJ, Michael, Bev, Jennifer and Chrissy who donated pieces for the evening’s auction.

Outside was the silent auction table set up with baskets donated from Studio 1, Unbelievable Skincare & Alyssa Macaroons. To our financial sponsors – Zechar Bailey, STL Insurance, Sadie Grace, Greenville Federal, Flory Landscaping & Edward Jones – Such a BIG Thank You! Under the lights in the memory garden beside the bubble wall was our very fun DJ, keeping it lively. And under the tent set up in the side yard held a grazing table by Atlas & Co Charcuterie. Beanz Bakery not only made the delicious pimento sandwiches, meatballs but also a special strawberry cheesecake for Lulu. Thank you to Silas Creative Kitchen for the sweet surprise of cupcakes – 23 of them. Ashley from Basic Bee Balloons created the most beautiful balloon displays that we’ll be enjoying for several weeks. “And thank you to our local downtown shops that helped advertise our event and for selling raffle tickets – Sadie Grace, Refined, Beanz, Rustic Roots, Hive and Bread of Life,” said Snyder. She also thanked the volunteers of the night – Haley, Liv & Pam. “We also want to say a big thank you to everyone who bought tickets, artwork and came out to support us,” said Jason Snyder. “And one more thank you to our kids who came home from college, took off work and spent the evening celebrating Lulu’s 13th Birthday! You four plus two more are our heart,” the couple shared.

The House that Lulu Built is a local non-profit grief care home in Greenville. They host grief care classes. They invite the community to share stories of the loved ones they lost too early. They celebrate those lives and our ongoing love for them. The House that Lulu Built provides a home for families who come into town to stay together at no cost for funeral services. Since opening our doors in the fall of 2019, we have been able to serve over 100 families. And counting. It has been a way for them to do something with the grief that they carry everyday.“We know in grief it takes a community and we truly have an amazing community to thank for their help with the success of our evening. We are already excited about planning next year’s Art & Auction,” said Cami Snyder
